Purlieu Le Pich Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
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 lack licorice and nutmeg. Fluid and smooth, the wine blends rich fruit complexity, elegant freshness, and well-integrated tannins. This vintage is delightful at release, but also worthy of cellaring another 2-6 years.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich features very pretty notes of crushed blueberries, blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of violets and cedar chest plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, packed with vibrant black fruits and plushly textured, this buxom beauty is ready for biz, finishing satisfyingly long and spicy.
Wine SpectatorA polished style, with a frame of ganache and melted licorice around a dense core of cassis, blackberry reduction and fig compote flavors. Has oomph for sure, but shows freshness and purity on the finish as well. Drink now through 2028. 3,000 cases made.
