95 points Wine Enthusiast: "“Philippe Melka makes this perennial stunner for Robin Daniel Lail, the U.S. representative to the Porto Protocol for climate action. It opens in a white flower aroma, with a palate reminiscent of lemon peel and wet stone. Balanced in weight, it is graceful, complex and lengthy in sumptuous flavors of pear and peach. The grapes were sourced from vineyards in Yountville and Coombsville."

92 points James Suckling: "A tangy, fruity white with dried-peach, apricot, melon and candied-apple character. Some honeysuckle and bread dough. Medium to full body and creamy texture. Fruity and delicious. Drink now. (2/14/20)"

91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Blueprint is bright, punchy and full of character. This is a boisterous wine, with terrific energy and plenty of cut. Green grassy notes, mint, white pepper, tomato leaf and sage build into this crisp, steely Sauvignon Blanc from Robin Lail. Drink: 2020-2026. (Jan 2020)"

91 points Connoisseurs' Guide: "[$40 list] A perennial favorite here at CGCW, the Lail Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc wins enthusiastic endorsement yet again. Introduced by deep, discreetly oaked, very nicely composed aromas of white melons, limes, fresh grass and flowers and following suit with lovely, layered flavors of the same, it is a wine that impresses right now for its polish, precision and fruity vibrancy, but it is also one that is impeccably balanced and will age famously for a good half-dozen years providing that one can resist its already considerable appeals. (Jan 2020)"

Producer notes: "Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc 2018 has intense aromas of mango, nectarine, honeysuckle, pineapple and lime zest. Adding further intrigue and complexity are flavors of yellow peach, vanilla, honeydew melon and Bosc pear. Exhibiting classic varietal energy and nerve, this is a beautiful and vibrant vintage for this distinctive wine."
