Product Description

The 2016 Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon from famed winemaker Philippe Melka is deep ruby with purple edges, with exotic aromas of black cherry, plum, cassis and dark chocolate.

Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels, 51 percent new

96 Points, "editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a stunningly beautiful wine at this price point, age-worthy and complex, it will stay with you long after it's gone. Opening in cedar, clove and cinnamon, it follows with a dusting of cocoa powder and toasted oak, before it offers a lingering thread of mineral in the form of crushed rock, violet, red and black currant. Structured as it goes, it finishes soft and silky. This is a wine for the cellar as well." -VB, 3/1/19

93 Points - Vinous
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is intense and dark, but also offers terrific freshness. Dark red stone fruit, chocolate, spice, menthol and rose petals are all pushed forward. The 2014 could use a few years to soften, but it is absolutely delicious today. This is a fabulous wine for the money." -AG, Dec/2018

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"Made up of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot aged 17 months in 51% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is deep garnet-purple colored and gives up expressive notes of warm plums, blackberry pie and blueberry compote with touches of Indian spices, black pepper, cigar box and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with spicy black fruit preserves, framed by velvety tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a peppery kick. 2,100 cases produced." -LPB, 10/29/18
