J. Daniel Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 750ml
J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon VINTAGE 2011, NAPA VALLEY
“Lail’s flagship wine, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée, is another rich, extroverted offering. Mocha, plums, chocolate, cloves, licorice and spices all emerge from a surprisingly big, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2011 is explosive, rich and intense, with equally imposing tannins that are going to need at least a few years to settle down. This is an impressive showing from Lail. The J. Daniel Cuvée is built on a core of fruit from Heimark, plus Mole Hill and Vine Hill Ranch.” 94+ points
--Antonio Galloni, Vinous
“The JDC 2011 begins with a seductive nose, exploding with aromas clove, anise and mocha. The palate is very refined with rich flavors of lavish Black cherry, fresh blue and black fruits and well structured tannins. The wine shows intensity and a flowing progression that leads to a finish of lush sweet oak intermingled with various red fruit notes.”

Lail Vineyards traces its Napa Valley roots back five generations to the founding of Inglenook Vineyards in 1879 by Robin Daniel Lail’s great-granduncle, Gustav Niebaum. Inglenook was passed down to Robin’s father, John Daniel, Jr., a Napa Valley legend and inductee in the Vintners Hall of Fame. Mr. Daniel created a legacy of excellence at Inglenook with his coveted Cabernets from 1933 to 1963. The winery’s flagship wine, “J. Daniel Cuvee”, is named in his honor.
Lail Vineyards was founded in 1995 by fourth generation vintner Robin Daniel Lail, and her daughters Erin and Shannon. Each year the family continues its passionate quest to produce the very finest wines in the world from the blend of their ingredients – the land, the seasons, the winemaking team and the spirit of the generations who led the way.
