Lail Vineyards, 2015 Lail 'Blueprint' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Robin Lail, as well as a fabulous value within the world of high-end Napa Valley Cabernet. Dense and powerful on the palate, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity in every dimension. Dark red cherry, plum, tobacco, menthol, licorice and grilled herbs give the wine aromatic intrigue, while shades of mocha, espresso and lavender appear with time in the glass. Racy and voluptuous, with notable depth, the 2015 will drink well with only minimal cellaring. Don't miss it."

Lail Vineyards, 2015 Lail 'Blueprint' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

"Containing just 7% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint sports a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant notes of fresh blackberries and black currants, mulberries, dusty earth and garrigue with bay leaves and sandalwood in the background. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features a good core of muscular, expressive fruit, supported by grainy tannins, finishing long and nicely poised."

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is a serious, age-worthy blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 42% new French oak. Blue and black fruits, toasty oak, scorched earth and licorice all emerge from this concentrated, backward, tannic red that needs 5-6 years of bottle age."
