2018 Purlieu ‘Le Pich’ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: A deep ruby robe, with darker black fruit and mineral aromas on the nose. The palate brightens into a ripe strawberry, raspberry and boysenberry core, layered with notes of black licorice and nutmeg. Fluid and smooth, this wine blends rich fruit complexity, elegant freshness, and well-integrated tannins.
Purlieu’s sister label, Le Pich, gets its name from a Wappo Indian term meaning “golden eagle.” They are hunting birds, and you can often spot them above our vineyards as they soar, glide, circle and arc. They are beautiful birds — stately and impressive, but not haughty or boasting, with a nimbleness that’s inspiring. We hope that our Le Pich wines live up to the character of their namesake.
Vinous - "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich is absolutely gorgeous. Ripe, plummy and so enticing, the 2018 offers tremendous appeal and tons of pure pleasure. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and licorice are nicely pushed forward in this gorgeous, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Julien Fayard. Best of all, the 2018 is a terrific value."
Jeb Dunnuck - "A good value, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich has a rich, concentrated, classic Napa Valley vibe as well as loads of cassis and plum fruits, notes of spice and dried tobacco, sweet tannins, and a good finish. Enjoy this ripe, hedonistic, pleasure-bent release any time over the coming 5-6 years, if not longer."
