Vintage
2018
Other Notes
"I was raised by my dad, John Daniel Jr., in the grand family tradition of Inglenook. He was, like Gustave Niebaum before him, a leader, an innovator, and the producer of legendary wines. Our flagship wine at Lail Vineyards, the J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, is named in his honor. My greatest challenge at Lail Vineyards is to create wines that meet and exceed the level of excellence set by my family in earlier generations." - Robin Daniel Lail

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

“The Lail 2018 J. Daniel Cuvée absolutely sings with the beauty and purity of the vintage, with its bright red fruits (raspberry, cherry and pomegranate), gorgeous texture, and glorious lenght. The telltale blackberry jam, black cherry, and boysenberry are here as always, as is ripe and rich demeanor. The wonderful balance belies the power and scale of this stunning vintage for J. Daniel Cuvée." — Philippe Melka, Winemaker

“This is a barrel sample of 100% Cabernet Sauvinon from vineyards in Calistoga, Oakville and Stags Leap. Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon needs a little coaxing to bring out all the gorgeous aromatic layers with black and blue fruit notions of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and fresh blackcurrants plus hints of violets, dark chocolate, underbrush, black tea and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is incredibly taut and minerality with a firm frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and earthy."- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
