Lail Vineyards 2016 "Blueprint" Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Roughly 90-95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5-10% Petit Verdot.

Approximately 18 months in French oak (55% new). Blueprint wines are a modern interpretation of these classic varieties, 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. "Blueprint" is named after Jon Lail's highly regarded architectural design achievements. 
 

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.

When Inglenook was sold in 1964, Robin continued to manage the remaining  estate vineyards under the mentorship of none other than Robert  Mondavi. It was Mondavi's encouragement and reminders of her family's  legacy that propelled Robin to launch the first Auction Napa Valley in  1981 and later, in 1995, of Lail Vineyards - where Robin and her family  partnerships continue the passionate quest to produce some of the finest  wines in the world.

Today, Philippe Melka is Lail's winemaker. A Bordeaux native, Philippe  grew up staging in reputable wineries such as Château Haut Brion,  Dominus (owned by Château Pétrus). Robin Lail, a co-founder of Dominus,  met Philippe there and brought him on board the Lail team shortly  thereafter.
