About the Wine:


The Blueprint is Lail Vineyards' modern interpretation of Cabernet Sauvignon, capturing the abundant sunshine of Napa Valley and transforming it into intensely flavorful wines meant for early release and enjoyment in a delicious, crowd-pleasing style. Whimsically named “Blueprint” as a nod to Jon Lail’s highly regarded architectural design achievements, this gorgeous Cabernet hails from impeccable vineyards and is made by a great winemaker.

Lail Vineyards Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Price above per 75cl bottle
  • "This is a stunningly beautiful wine that is ageworthy, complex and will stay with you long after it's gone. Tones of cedar, clove and cinnamon start it off, followed by a dusting of cocoa powder and toasted oak. Lingering threads of crushed rock, violet and currant carry the finish. It finishes soft and silky.”

    96 points, Wine Enthusiast (Jan. 2019)


    "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is fabulous, not to mention a huge overachiever in its price range. A burst of sweet red cherry, plum, espresso, chocolate, tobacco, menthol and French oak hits the palate. Expressive, pliant and super-inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. Best of all, it will drink well upon release.”
