#1 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2020
Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is deep ruby with purple edges in color, with exotic aromas of ripe red plum, bittersweet chocolate, black cherry and loganberry. Spicy flavors of ollalieberry, blackberry, and boysenberry add further intrigue and complexity. Its texture is round, lush, creamy, and perfectly balanced.
Made by Philippe Melka and his team, this is a grippy, earthy wine, vibrant in blue fruit, plum and sage. Round, lush and opulent on the palate, it glides seamlessly across supple, integrated tannin and oak, effortlessly incorporating 11% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. The vineyard sources range from the producer's Mole Hill Estate on Howell Mountain to the cooler reaches of Coombsville.
A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot from a multitude of vineyards, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint reveals a saturated purple color as well as classic notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, damp earth, chocolate, and hints of new leather. Beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied, ripe, and textured, it's a smoking good, affordable effort well worth seeking out. It will evolve for 10-15 years or more.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is a rich, boisterous wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Black cherry, dark red plum, chocolate, new leather, spice and espresso give the 2017 its flamboyant, heady personality.
Friendly plum and cassis flavors are warm and ripe in feel, with melted licorice and sweet vanilla accents on the toasty finish. A touch heavy-handed in style. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,265 cases made.
