A beautiful Napa Cabernet. This 7 year old is delicious now. Showing baked black fruits with chocolates, notes and cedar, vanilla, coffee, earth, cola and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with great complexity and mouthfeel.

Long finish with fine tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (3 hours).

Thank you Scott for sharing.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

95 points

Mountain fruit feel, loads of wild cherry, florals, and silky tannins. Always love a good Melka wine.

At this age, the dark fruit while luscious was overpowered by the chewy tannins. Chocolate notes as well. Slight acidity sets this up to be a nice wine down the road. Drinking a bit hot now. Needs time but has the stuffing.

This Lail Vineyards 2012 Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple in color, with a wonderful nose of dark red and blue fruits, black licorice, chocolate and a hint of Asian spices. We drank this wine over 2 days and it only got better the second day as the typical 2012 fruit bomb mellowed and hints of licorice, Asian spices and earth started to show them selves. , The mouthfeel is extremely inviting and full bodied, with mild acidity, medium viscosity and layered complexity. This is a beauty!
