James Suckling 93 - Lightly grassy but with some pretty gooseberries and hints of minerals and spices. The palate is linear with lots of fresh acidity but also packs a punch with some attractive apple to citrus fruit and a long finish.
Connnoiseur's Guide 93 - Veering away from the fresh, grassy model for Sauvignon Blanc and instead showing a mix of richness and hints of honey backed up by steely, gravelly notes, light grasses and whispers of Meyer lemons, this nose promises much and the wine delivers fully on the palate. It is supple and somewhat polished to start yet firms up across the palate in a way that invites a few years of cellaring for those who will resist its current charms. It has the range and stuffing to work with rich lobster dishes.
Vinous 92 - Robin Lail's 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint is soft, open-knit and caressing, with lovely aromatic lift and brightness in the citrus and white stone fruit flavors. There is plenty of depth and texture in the glass, but also terrific freshness throughout.
Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc 2015 is bright, vibrant and fresh, wit h intense aromas of Meyer lemon, almond, white peach and grapefruit skin. In the mouth it has that wonderful zesty energy of the world’s best Sauvignon Blancs, showing lychee a nd mango notes combined with the classic citr us flavors so characteristic of the grape. The barrel fermentation adds subtle tones of brioche, vanilla and white flowers. This is an outstanding vintage for Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc.
