(100% cabernet sauvignon): Good full dark ruby. Expressive aromas and flavors of kirsch , blueberry, licorice and tar. Sweet, plush and slightly soft; already attractive and approachable. Could use a bit more definition but this rich cabernet boasts plenty of tannic support and finishes with excellent length.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is endowed with serious minerality and pure intensity. Graphite, pencil shavings, blackberries and cloves are all woven together in this firm, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 boasts gorgeous purity, inner perfume and intensity, all in a relatively friendly, accessible style for the year. At the same time, though, there is plenty of 2010 structure in the glass. I imagine another year or two will only help the wine harmonize even more fully. This is a great showing from Lail. The Blueprint is made from parcels in Totem, Farella and Crocker vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
