About This Wine:
Our flagship wine is named for John Daniel Jr., ancestor to the Lail Vineyards legacy. The 21st century interpretation of the family’s highly acclaimed Cabernet blends of the past, the J. Daniel Cuvee is a beautifully integrated, elegant and subtly Bordelaise blend that is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Vineyard:
Howell Mountain, Oakville & Dutch Henry Canyon

Tasting Notes:
“A Lail Vineyards’ classic, our 2009 J. Daniel Cuvee reveals how attention to detail is important to winemaking. It is dark, integrated and intense, with extremely refined tannins and integrated oak. Aromas include cherry,
mocha, blackberries and tobacco. Focus, an explosion of black fruits, firm acidity, and broad structure, make it a timeless bottle. Drinking optimum: 2019 – 2029.” - Philippe Melka, Winemaker


Ratings & Reviews
95-97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The barrel sample of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the identical sources) exhibits beautiful, sweet tannin, loads of charcoal, a full-bodied flavor profile of blue and black fruits, softer tannins and a more open-knit, up-front appeal than the somewhat firm and more closed blockbuster 2013. In keeping with this vintage character, the wine is very showy, charming and should drink beautifully when released in a year or so, evolving gracefully for at least two decades." - Robert Parker (Oct 2015)

95 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon John Daniel Cuvée turned out beautifully. In fact, it is even better from bottle than it was from barrel. Deep, unctuous and powerful, but with good freshness, the 2014 hits all the right notes. Specifically, the 2014 offers tons of richness, but without the heaviness or raisinated character that has defined some previous years." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2016)
