2015 LAIRD JILLIAN’S BLEND
When a winery has the ability to hand-select fruit from vineyards spanning the entire reach of Napa Valley, they’re often able to complete a more complex and layered blend than if they were confined to just one vineyard. As one of Napa Valley’s preeminent farming families, Laird is able to do just that. Their wines are always rock-solid, and in a vintage like 2015 where yields were small and quality was high, they made one of their greatest blends of all time.
The 2015 was built around a core of is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon that was primarily sourced from the winery’s Mast Ranch Vineyard in Yountville. Their single-vineyard Mast Ranch Cab sells for $80/btl… Winemaker Brian Mox, whom previously consulted for Lewis and Etude completed the blend with Syrah from Carneros, Merlot from Big Ranch, and Malbec and Petit Verdot from Flat Rock Ranch in Yountville. The final blend deliciously proves that the sum of this winemaker’s selection is greater than its parts.
Developing for 22 months in oak, the 2015 oozes with intense dark fruits, black chocolates, blackberry, cassis and spices. Commanding a presence from one of the valley’s best vintages, one that the Wine Spectator describes as “Short crop delivered big quality surprise; rich, supple and deeply colored”, Laird’s new Jillian’s Blend is exemplary.
