Produced by the Lail Family with superstar winemaker Philippe Melka, the 2010 Cabernet Blueprint is another winner. Firm and elegant with deft balance between brooding fruit character and classic structure.

Soft and generous, the 2009 is already very approachable. Attractive silky tannins underlie a bed of ripe cranberries and blackberries. Complementing the red fruit character you will find elegant touches of dry leaves and cigar box.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint bursts from the glass with an exciting array of dark red and blue fruit, licorice, flowers and spices. There is gorgeous depth and purity to the fruit in this round, supple wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Lail Vineyards Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The 2007 is living up to all of its promise when tasted last year from barrel. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of graphite, licorice, black cherry liqueur, black currants, crushed rocks, spice box, and cedar. With Pauillac-like aromatic and flavor profiles, this opulent, full-bodied, rich 2007 reveals superb purity as well as definition.

WA 96pts. - IWC 94pts. - According to Robert Parker: Lail s flagship wine is the J. Daniel Cuvee. The 2007 is living up to all of its promise when tasted last year from barrel. There are 850 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from four separate sites in Napa (in Calistoga, Howell Mountain, Coombsville, and Rutherford). A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of graphite, licorice, black cherry liqueur, black currants, crushed rocks, spice box, and cedar. With Pauillac-like aromatic and flavor profiles, this opulent, full-bodied, rich 2007 reveals superb purity as well as definition. It may even grow in stature over the next five years, and is capable of lasting 20-25+ years.

WA 90pts. - IWC 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot) aims to provide realistic pricing for a Napa Cabernet. This excellent effort exhibits plenty of deep black currant fruit intertwined with hints of white chocolate, cocoa, and background oak. It possesses good density, medium body, and sweet tannin. Consume it over the next decade.
