Vinous Reverie Notes
“Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is deeply-colored ruby with purple edges, showing explosive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, ripe red plum, and espresso. Sweey spicy flavors of boysenberry, dark chocolate and cassis add further intrigue and complexity. It is layered and rich in texture - lush, creamy, and finely balanced. This is a full-throttle and totally complete vintage for Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon.” ~ Philippe Melka, Winemaker
Roughly 90-95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5-10% Petit Verdot. Aging: Approximately 18 months in French oak (55% new). Blueprint wines are a modern interpretation of these classic varieties, capturing the abundant sunshine of Napa Valley and transforming it into intensely flavorful wines meant for early release and enjoyment in a delicious, crowd-pleasing style. "Blueprint" is named after Jon Lail's highly regarded architectural design achievements.
