2021 Wine of The Year—2018 Le Pich Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley $65
2021’s Winemaker of the Year, Julien Fayard crafts an outstanding Cabernet that delivers on value—the Le Pich Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is from the stunning 2018 vintage.
WSI4+ VIN92 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. The 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet vintage belongs in an echelon with the finest of the past two decades. Best of all, this 2018 is a terrific value!
Estate Notes: The brilliant magenta robe beckons with ripe red fruit and delicate baking spice aromas. Juicy boysenberry and ripe red berries expand in the mouth, edged with gentle floral notes and fresh-baked pastry. Round, full and fresh, this wine shows ripe tannins already falling smoothly into place, and a long, rich finish of boysenberry and warm raspberry preserves. 14.9% alc. 50% new French Oak
Congratulations Julien Fayard and Team for Wine of the Year!
