Vintage

Other Notes
J. Daniel Cuvée is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on extraordinary and distinct Napa Valley sites. This multi-vineyards cuvée is assembled over its 20 months of aging in barrels, during which we seek the greatest expression of harmony and balance from that vintage. Our flagship bottling is named in honor of founder Robin Lail's father, John Daniel, Jr., a true innovator who produced legendary wines.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

“J. Daniel Cuvée 2017 has wonderful aromas of briary fruits such as black raspberry and boysenberry, together with black cherry and ripe red plums. The flavors add nuances of fine tobacco and forest floor notes, along with blueberry and strawberry preserve. Full bodied, rich, powerful, and long, with fine-grained tannins, this is another great vintage for J. Daniel Cuvée." — Philippe Melka, Winemaker

“The flagship cuvée, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 75% new French oak. Rocking levels of cassis, graphite, vanilla, scorched earth, and tobacco all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet that has building tannins, a terrific, deep, layered mid-palate, and a great finish. It's still tight and backward on the palate, and in need of 4-5 years of bottle age, but it's a beautiful wine in the making.." — Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com
