Editors' Choice. 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... Editors' Choice. 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.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is fabulous, not to mention a huge overachiever in its price range. A burst of sweet red cherry, plum, espresso, chocolate, tobacco, menthol and French oak hits the palate... The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is fabulous, not to mention a huge overachiever in its price range. A burst of sweet red cherry, plum, espresso, chocolate, tobacco, menthol and French oak hits the palate. Expressive, pliant and super-inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. Best of all, it will drink well upon release.

Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is the entry-level release and is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, sourced from numerous vineyards, and aged in 51% new French oak. It has textbook dark fruits, cedary spice, and earth notes, medium to full body, good concentration, and a balanced, classic style that’s incredibly satisfying. It will keep for 15+ years.

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... 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
