A Lail Vineyards' classic, our 2009 J. Daniel Cuvee reveals how attention to detail is important to winemaking. It is dark, integrated and intense, with extremely refined tannins and integrated oak. Aromas include cherry, mocha, blackberries and tobacco. Focus, an explosion of black fruits, firm acidity, and broad structure, make it a timeless bottle.
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon John Daniel Cuvee wraps around the palate with expressive layers of fruit. The pure seduction of the vintage comes through beautifully. Silky tannins help convey an impression of total seamlessness. Blue and black fruit, cloves and tar inform the radiant, powerful finish. I can’t wait to see how the 2009 develops in bottle. The 2009 was made exclusively from Heimark Vineyard in Calistoga. It spent 22 months in French oak barrels, 98% new."

"Pure and well-focused on bright, rich plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit, leading to mixed flavors of crushed rock and fresh earth. Ends with fine-grained tannins."
"Bright full ruby. Crushed blackberry, black raspberry, licorice and chocolate on the very ripe nose. Suave, pliant and fine-grained, with rich flavors of cassis, plum and chocolate. Very young but harmonious from the start in the style of the vintage. Finishes with substantial, dusty, building tannins, a firm edge of acidity and excellent length.Rating: 92(+?)"

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
