Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[91]

"The 1995 J. Daniel Cuvee is the debut release from Lail Vineyards. An outstanding effort, it is a blend of 56% Merlot and 44% Cabernet Sauvignon made by Philip Melka (the winemaker at Seavey). The wine is a beautifully rendered, Medoc-like California red with a dense, saturated ruby/purple color, and stylish, complex aromatics consisting of tobacco, black currants, creme de cassis, and subtle toasty oak (approximately 33% new oak casks are utilized). The wine is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a graceful, long mid-palate and finish, and 15 or more years of potential evolution. From the finesse/elegant school of California proprietary reds, this wine is rich and layered, with everything in impeccable balance." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #118 (Aug 30, 1998)
