WINEMAKER NOTES

“Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc 2017 has enticing aromas of white peach, nectarine, honeysuckle, lemon/lime, and anise. It has that classic varietal energy and nerve, both vibrant and racy. Flavors of pie crust, vanilla, honeydew melon and Bartlett pear add intrigue and complexity. This is a beautiful and dynamic vintage for this special wine.”  - Philippe Melka, Winemaker

ACCOLADES

93 points | VINOUS

“Robin Lail's 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, crisp and beautifully delineated, with tons of varietal character, the Blueprint screams with varietal character. This is such a classy and polished wine. The 2017 is a real overachiever. Vineyard sources are Totem, Farella and Rewa."

93 points | WINE ENTHUSIAST MAGAZINE

“;Always impressive, this is a fleshy, boldly structured white wine, offering a tremendous palate of exotic flavor. Lemon rind, wet stone, peach and a grittiness of background oak mingle effortlessly within a moderate richness of balanced complexity.” 

92 points | CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE to California Wine

“A consistent producer of top flight Sauignon Blancs year in and year out. Lail has once again come up with a highly recommended example that is serious expression of what the variety can offer. It hits all the bases as far as deep fruit, subtle grassiness, judicious oak and impeccable balance go, and, while not at all difficult to access a the moment, it conveys a sense of structured strenght that in no uncertain terms proclaims that it will only get better over the next half decade or more. That is not to say that it is anything less than delicious right now, and it will make special drinking with dishes as rich as lobster in sauce for those who understandably see no reason to wait."

90 points | THE WINE ADVOCATE

“The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint (fermented in 60% new French oak and aged in stainless steel) opens with lovely scents of gooseberries, green apples and fresh grapefruit with hints of wild thyme, fresh grass and coriander seed. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and vivacious with lovely purity and a well-substained finish."
