J. Daniel Cuvée

Vintage
2017
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

ACCOLADES

“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée is one of the most impressive wines of the year”  — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

 

“The 2017 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga, Oakville and Stags Leap. It was aged 20 months in 75% new French oak. Mole Hill fruit was declassified this vintage because of smoke taint. Very deep purple-black in color, it starts out slighly muted and broody, with coaxing revealing notions of black currants, blackberry compote and plums preserves followed by notions of tar, chargrill, sautéed herbs and pencil lead plus a hint of Marmite toast. Full-bodied, the palate has nice ripe, fine-grained tannins and a refreshing backbone cutting through the savory flavors, finishing long and kust a little firm." — Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
