LAIL VINEYARDS BLUEPRINT - 2001
From Napa Valley with 14.1% alcohol. 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark red color with charred oak on the nose and lots of creamy oak and dark cherry on the palate with hints of herbs. Fairly soft but there is too much alcohol present on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Lacks complexity and is overly simple. Pairs much better with food than on its own but comes off as one-dimensional and plain. Somewhat out of balance alcohol. An overpriced effort.
