Robin Lail's 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, crisp and beautifully delineated, with tons of varietal character, the Blueprint screams with varietal character. This is such a classy and polished wine. The 2017 is a real overachiever. Vineyard sources are Totem, Farella and Rewa.

Glorious and rich with sliced-apple, lemon and crushed-stone character. Full and dense with freshness and beauty. A blend of sauvignon from Coomsville and Yountville.

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint (fermented in 60% new French oak and aged in stainless steel) opens with lovely scents of gooseberries, green apples and fresh grapefruit with hints of wild thyme, fresh grass and coriander seed. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and vivacious with lovely purity and a well-sustained finish.
Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc is Lail Vineyards' 21st Century interpretation of this classic varietal. A vibrant, flavorful wine meant for early release and enjoyment, it is the darling of a broad audience. The wine is produced from outstanding vineyards by our critically acclaimed winemaker, Philippe Melka. The name "Blueprint" is a salute to Jon Lail's highly regarded architectural design achievements in the wine world.
Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc 2017 has enticing aromas of white peach, nectarine, honeysuckle, lemon/lime, and anise. It has that classic varietal energy and nerve, both vibrant and racy. Flavors of pie crust, vanilla, honeydew melon and Bartlett pear add intrigue and complexity. This is a beautiful and dynamic vintage for this special wine.
