Lail Vineyards Blueprint Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

$39.99

A fantastic Sauvignon Blanc from Lail and winemaker Philippe Melka. The Lail Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc exhibits the fabulous acidity, minerality, and amazing purity of its Sancerre sisters. Produced with a focus on preservation of aromatics and acidity, it has an elegant and intense perfume of geranium, melon and lime, and crisp fruit flavors with profound richness and length 93 Points Connnoiseur's Guide:  "Veering away from the fresh, grassy model for Sauvignon Blanc and instead showing a mix of richness and hints of honey backed up by steely, gravelly notes, light grasses and whispers of Meyer lemons, this nose promises much and the wine delivers fully on the palate. It is supple and somewhat polished to start yet firms up across the palate in a way that invites a few years of cellaring for those who will resist its current charms. It has the range and stuffing to work with rich lobster dishes."

Rich, citrus, methane, oak. Interesting depth, but not my preferred style of SB.

Spruce? Call me crazy but it's there. Bright and vibrant with racy acidity.

Stone fruits...big white peach. Grapefruit, grapefruit pit, lime zest, green apple, sour lemons, medium intensity on the fine minerals, sticky silky chalk.

Generally I dislike the idea of oak fermented/aged SB, but this wine changed my mind years ago. Still a fave!!
