External Reviews for Lail J. Daniel's Cuvee Napa
Robert Parker: `The 2006 J. Daniel Cuvee is living up to my laudatory notes from last year. Black currant crushed rock licorice asphalt graphite and chocolate characteristics are present in this full-bodied effort. With excellent purity depth and delineation it should drink beautifullly for 20+ years.` Lail Vineyards traces its Napa Valley roots back five generations to the founding of Inglenook in 1879 by Gustav Niebaum great-grand uncle of Robin Daniel Lail. Passed down to third generation owner John Daniel Jr. Inglenook thrived under his direction from 1933 to 1964 as he played a major role in the development of the Napa Valley appellation. He was recently inducted into the Vintners Hall of Fame at the Culinary Institute of America Greystone. Robin and her family partners continue the passionate quest to produce some of the very finest wines in the world. Their flagship J. Daniel Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon bottling brings to each glass a historic family winemaking tradition.
93 points Wine Spectator: Pure and well-focused on bright, rich plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit, leading to mixed flavors of crushed rock and fresh earth. Ends with fine-grained tannins. Best from 2013 through 2026. 470 cases made. (10/31/12)
