2013 Lail Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée Napa Valley
This is an exceptional wine. It juzt keeps getting better every time I open a bottle. I have 5 bottles left that I am planning to drink over the next 5 years. It is an absolute treat

Deep and dark in color, the wine exudes flowers, tobacco, smoke, licorice and dark red fruit aromas. Full-bodied, lushly textured, round and fresh, the fruit has this beautiful, opulent, sensuous character. This is a good thing as it allows the cashmere tannins and layers of sweet, ripe, almost decadent berries to come alive, expand and really hang in there. If you are a fan of Leoville Poyferre, this needs to be in your cellar. Blending 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the wine reached 14.1 alcohol. The harvest took place from September 20 to October 11. 96-98 Pts

I would write speechless, but that wouldn’t be fun now, would it? I’ll jot down my tasting note, but if you need to re-evaluate your life and get closer to the meaning of it, I urge you, for the love of Dionysus, to try this wine whenever you get the chance. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Sangiovese (20%) and Cabernet Franc (5%), 2012’s Solaia offers deep ruby red and a medium nose displaying notes of cooked black fruit, mint, vanilla, wet soil and a splash of minerality. Dry with a humongous concentration and grippy tannins. If you like them big and bold, this is your bottle.

Wow. This wine is awesome right now. What a great drinking spot. Had some friends over. Decanted this, 08 Sabina, 09 Dominus, 13 4 Winds, and a 12 Harbison Chardonnay. Dinner consisted of filet and grilled lobster tails. Hands down the Blankiet was the wine of the night.
