2018 Lail "Blueprint" Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1444943 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Philippe Melka makes this perennial stunner for Robin Daniel Lail, the U.S. representative to the Porto Protocol for climate action. It opens in a white flower aroma, with a palate reminiscent of lemon peel and wet stone. Balanced in weight, it is graceful, complex and lengthy in sumptuous flavors of pear and peach. The grapes were sourced from vineyards in Yountville and Coombsville. (VB) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tangy, fruity white with dried-peach, apricot, melon and candied-apple character. Some honeysuckle and bread dough. Medium to full body and creamy texture. Fruity and delicious. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark A perennial favorite here at CGCW, the Lail Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc wins enthusiastic endorsement yet again. Introduced by deep, discreetly oaked, very nicely composed aromas of white melons, limes, fresh grass and flowers and following suit with lovely, layered flavors of the same, it is a wine that impresses right now for its polish, precision and fruity vibrancy, but it is also one that is impeccably balanced and will age famously for a good half-dozen years providing that one can resist its already considerable appeals.

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint is bright, punchy and full of character. This is a boisterous wine, with terrific energy and plenty of cut. Green grassy notes, mint, white pepper, tomato leaf and sage build into this crisp, steely Sauvignon Blanc from Robin Lail. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of three different vineyards and all Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint was fermented in 50% new French oak for 4 months then moved to tank. It offers a pure, classic style in its ripe citrus, grapefruit, and minty aromas and flavors. It's clean, beautifully balanced, and classy Sauvignon Blanc well worth seeking out.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, from vineyards in Yountville and Commbsville, was barrel fermented in 30% new French oak and aged in stainless steel. It opens with beautiful peach blossoms, fresh green apples and lemonade notes with touches of lime leaves, coriander seed and paraffin wax. Medium-bodied, refreshing, elegant and with impressive intensity, the palate delivers impactful citrus and savory layers with a zesty kick to the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Subtle and elegant, starting off with a supple frame that gives way to pear, Meyer lemon, lemon verbena and candied ginger flavors, finishing with a fresh thread of acidity. (MW) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
