100 points - limited One of Napa Valley's highest-rated Cabs of the 2015 vintage - Limited. Only 470 cases produced. 100 Points Robert Parker: “The profound 2015 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the same sources and is again 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. However, 2015 is such a great vintage, with very low yields and incredibly ripe fruit, this wine exhibits high energy and acidity, ripe tannin framing up the enormous fruit, unctuous texture and inkiness of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This dense purple wine displays blackberry, cassis, violets, cedar wood, charcoal and subtle barbecue smoke. Superb, full-bodied, opulent and voluptuous, it is ideal for drinking over the next 25-30+ years. It is a tour de force... ...Robin Lail is one of the true icons of Napa Valley. Her great grand-uncle Gustave Niebaum was one of the pioneers for Napa Valley viticulture as well as the founder of Inglenook Vineyards. Her family’s fascinating history dates back to 1879, and Robin can truly boast of having worked with the best professionals and superstars of Napa Valley, from Robert Mondavi and Bill Harlan to Christian Moueix at Dominus. However, she’s on her own now with Lail Vineyards and has produced a bevy of extraordinary wines with the help of her wine consultant Philippe Melka. There are two pricing tiers, with the Blueprint wines the less expensive wines aimed at consumers and the restaurant trade, and the more limited production Georgia Sauvignon Blanc and J. Daniel cuvées of Cabernet Sauvignon for connoisseurs with thick wallets." "
