Winemaker Philippe Melka again crafted a stellar wine from Lail’s Totem Estate vineyard in Coombsville.
Philippe Melka says: “The Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc 2018 has intense aromas of mango, nectarine, honeysuckle, pineapple and lime zest. Adding further intrigue and complexity are flavors of yellow peach, vanilla, honeydew melon and Bosc pear. Exhibiting classic varietal energy and nerve, this is a beautiful and vibrant vintage for this distinctive wine”

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.
Wine Spectator 95 Points: “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.“
