RatingNot Yet Rated

Lail has long held the blueprints for crafting beautiful, compelling wines worthy of celebrating. Raised in a combination of oak and stainless steel to capture the best of both worlds, Philippe Melka’s Sauvignon Blanc is a quenching collection of citrus, stone-fruit and vanilla. Ripe and generous, you can count on a beautiful expression of summer’s favorite varietal.

It’s not hard to figure out why Robin Daniel Lail is making some of the most elite wines in the Napa Valley. She’s had some time to prepare. Not only did she grow up looking over her father John Daniel’s shoulder in Inglenook Winery in Rutherford, she worked for Robert Mondavi for 5 years, then in 1982, she co-founded Dominus with Christian Moueix, and in 1983, co-founded Merryvale Vineyards with Bill Harlan, where she served as President for ten years. She founded Lail in 1995. We call that a track record. Lail’s winemaker is Philippe Melka, one of the finest winemakers in our little sylvan valley, not to mention the world. He’s worked for Lail since the beginning, not to mention Dominus Estate in Rutherford and Château Petrus in Pomerol. Not exactly a lightweight, as they say.
