Cabernet Sauvignon, J. Daniel Cuvée by Lail | 2014
Lail Vineyards is storybook Napa. Its gatekeeper is the marvelous Robin Daniel Lail, co-founder of the Napa icons, Dominus and Merryvale, and to top it off, the great grandniece of famous Inglenook founder, Gustave Niebaum — Napa royalty, in short. But, as we know, wine isn't about kings and queens. It's about the land, the farmers, and the craft. And, in a glass of J. Daniel Cuvée, you taste that — the delicious grit and soul of Napa Valley.
Pure Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from Howell Mountain, Oakville, and Calistoga, the 2014 exudes a prettiness within power. The nose is a pinwheel of brambly fruits, enlivened by the freshness of mountain flowers and crushed fine herbs. Made by winemaker extraordinaire, Philippe Melka, J. Daniel has plenty of "nuts and bolts" to age into the next decade. But, why wait, if it's so darn perfect now? That's Lail.
