About the Estate:

 

Robin’s beautiful home at The Mole Hill Estate on Howell Mountain is the heart and soul of Lail, and gives its name to the hyper-rare Mole Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – wine so rare that it is not made every year, and has not been reviewed by any wine writer.

 

As well as Mole Hill, Lail has vineyards at top sites across the valley: Heimark in Calistoga, Vine Hill Ranch in Oakville, Totem Estate in Yountville, Crocker in St. Helena, Farella and Rewa in Coombsville. As well as these stunning Cabernets, Lail is famed for its Sauvignon Blancs. The top cuvee is the exclusive Georgia Sauvignon Blanc, produced from cooler sites in Yountville. Robin recently served the 2004 vintage to Parker who was astonished to find how fresh and complex it was at over ten years of age! He described the Georgia as one of the great Sauvignon Blancs of the USA.

Status
  • "The flagship wines include the 2014 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from three sources – the family vineyard called Molehill at a 1700-feet elevation on Howell Mountain, the Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard and Heimark Vineyard in Calistoga. A gorgeous 2014, with notes of graphite, mulberry and blackcurrant, this full-bodied, opaque purple wine offers terrific fruit purity, sweet tannin, and a long finish of a good 45+ seconds. It was aged 19 months in 75% new French oak and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. There are 1,064 cases, and it can be drunk now or cellared for another 25 years."
