"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot) aims to provide realistic pricing for a Napa Cabernet. This excellent effort exhibits plenty of deep black currant fruit intertwined with hints of white chocolate, cocoa, and background oak. It possesses good density, medium body, and sweet tannin. Consume it over the next decade.

Two styles of Sauvignon Blanc are being produced by John and Robin Lail." (WA)

"($50) Good ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas and flavors of dark berries, black cherry and licorice. A sweet, moderately fat 2007 that's showing more intensity than nuance today, but which finishes with firm, rather sweet tannins and very good length." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
THE PEOPLE
Lail Vineyards traces its Napa Valley roots back five generations to the founding of Inglenook in 1879 by Gustav Niebaum, great-grand uncle of Robin Daniel Lail. Passed down to third generation owner John Daniel, Jr., Inglenook thrived under his direction from 1933 to 1964 as he played a major role in the development of the Napa Valley appellation. The winery’s flagship wine, “J. Daniel Cuvee”, is named in his honor. Lail Vineyards was founded in 1995 by fourth generation vintner Robin Lail and her family to carry the unique family legacy forward into the 21st Century. Generations five and six are woven into the tapestry of the venture with the involvement of daughters Erin and Shannon, and with the “Georgia” Sauvignon Blanc named for the first member of the sixth generation. Each year the family continues its passionate quest to produce the very finest wines in the world from the blend of their ingredients – the land, the seasons, the winemaking team and the spirit
