2016 LE PICH Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker Julien Fayard defined his core winemaking style at the exalted first growth Chateau Lafite-Rothschild where he says he learned how not to excessively intervene with the winery.  He says, “If you put in the hard work in the vineyard, you have to trust and have patientce.  Then, on its own, the wine will become all that it is capable of.”

Now in Napa Valley, Julien has produced highly ranked wines for Lail, Gemstone and Dalla Valle while nurturing strong relationships with many passionate, quality-dedicated growers.

This wine offers aromas of black plum, blackberries, black cherry, lilacs and graphite.  This full-bodied 100% Cabernet is rich and beautifully balanced with flavors of fully ripened black fruit, floral notes and melted chocolate that lead to an explosive long finish.  This is everything you would expect from the winemaking team of Julien Fayard and Steve Matthiasson.  Reg. $65, call for exclusive pricing.
