The 2019 Le Pich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers brilliant fruit and graceful aromatics wrapped in a seamless satin package. The nose opens with aromas of black cherry, pencil lead and stone. The palate broadens to a lustrous core of ripe boysenberries and blackberries, whose vibrancy gains dimension from the fresh minerality beneath. Full and soft in the mouth, this wine already offers wonderfully silky, mature tannins. Juicy plum and milk chocolate notes develop on the mid-palate and continue through the long finish of black raspberries and mint tea.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich is a terrific introductory-level wine from Julien Fayard. A rich, opulent wine, Le Pich offers up a compelling mélange of black cherry, plum, chocolate, cloves, new leather and licorice. This bold, sumptuous Cabernet delivers the goods, big time. The 2019 is one of the best editions of Le Pich I can remember tasting.

A fragrant nose of blackcurrants, ripe berries, dark cherries, candied walnuts and sweet spices. Full body with tight-grained tannins. Fruity and vivid.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich pops with vibrant notes of crushed blueberries, kirsch and boysenberries, plus hints of spice cake and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, softly textured and packed with spicy black fruits, it finishes with impressive length.
