2014 Laird Jillian's Blend Napa Valley Red Wine (Elsewhere $45) 750ml

Quick Overview

Legendary winemaker Paul Hobbs is behind Laird wines! Complex and precocious just like the real Jillian. Its deep, ruby red appearance, accompanied by viscous legs, leads the way to a seductive bouquet of toasted oak, candied plum, and ripe strawberries. A medium-bodied palate, with delicate tannins and acidity, leads the way to tart dusty cherries and boysenberries that dance across your palate, while flavors of clove, vanilla and blueberry custard unfold on the finish.

2014 Laird Jillian's Blend Napa Valley Red Wine (Elsewhere $45) 750ml

By the late 1990’s the Laird vineyard holdings had exceeded 2,000 acres and the idea of making their own premium line of wines began to take shape. Architect, Jon Lail, showed Ken and Gail the plans for the iconic pyramid-shaped, multi-level winery. Construction began on what would become the Red Hen Ranch vineyard property north of Napa. Ken and Gail’s son, Justin, worked side-by-side with Ken in the vineyards and became the Vineyard Manger, while their daughter, Rebecca, became the General Manager of the winery. Rebecca’s daughter, Jillian, was born in 2005, the same year the winery’s first red blend was produced, appropriately named Jillian’s Blend (and it happens to be Laird Family Estate’s most popular wine). Justin’s daughter, Megan, works in finance in New York City. His son, David, is continuing the family’s farming legacy by working with his dad in the vineyards.

JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 93

JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Aromas of blackberries and light green coffee beans. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Shows form and reserve. A blend of mainly cabernet sauvignon (65%) with the rest syrah, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Better in 2020 when it melts together.
