"Robin Lail's 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint is soft, open-knit and caressing, with lovely aromatic lift and brightness in the citrus and white stone fruit flavors. There is plenty of depth and texture in the glass, but also terrific freshness throughout." –Feb-17
"The 2015 Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc comes from four separate sources spread throughout Napa Valley, from Coombsville in the south to St. Helena in the north. One hundred percent Sauvignon Blanc fermented in two-thirds new French oak, then aged in stainless steel, the wine has terrific acidity, plenty of minerality, caramelized grapefruit and melon, medium body, and wonderful purity and fragrance. It is a top-flight Sauvignon to drink over the next 3-4 years."
100% Sauvignon Blanc from Crocker (St. Helena), Farella (Coombsville) and Rewa (Coombsville) vineyards.
The name “Blueprint” honors Jon Lail’s highly regarded architectural design achievements. These are wines from impeccable vineyards made by a great winemaker that are meant to reflect the finest expression of Napa Valley. The wine was first produced in 2007 as a counterpoint to ‘Georgia’ Sauvignon Blanc. It is meant for early release and enjoyment in a delicious, crowd-pleasing style. It should drink well for at least three to four years.
Fruit is fermented in French oak barrels (55% new); aging occurs in stainless steel.
