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.

 

In 2018, the wine spent 18 months in French Oak (50% new). The vineyards are located in Calistoga, Coombsville, Diamond Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, Stags Leap District, St. Helena and Yountville.

  • "As with the whites, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is a larger production release that sports a dense purple color as well as classic Cabernet notes of blue and black fruits, green tobacco, graphite, and spring flowers. With a more fruit-forward style, it's still rich, medium to full-bodied, has classy tannins, and is a seriously good bottle of wine.”
