The 2019 Lail Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color with purple edges, and reveals gorgeous aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, and blackberry purée. Flavors follow in step, adding blue and red fruits with notes of cocoa, black olive, and sage. It is richly-layered with wonderful freshness and bright energy. Finely balanced, long, and delicious, this is a great expression of the excellent 2019 vintage.

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint has a deep garnet-purple color and sings of wild blueberries, Morello cherries and red and black currant jellies with touches of dried mint, chocolate box and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with crunchy black fruits, supported by fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and lifted. A barrel sample, 2,000 cases will be made." -LPB, 3/18/21
