Le Pich

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.

2013 Le Pich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon main Aromas of black plum, blackberries, blackcherry, lilacs and graphite. This full-bodied 100% Cabernet is rich and beautifully balanced with flavors fully ripened black fruit, floral notes, and melted chocolate and leading to an explosive long finish. This is every thing you would expect from the winemaking team of Steve Matthiasson and Julien Fayard (Philippe Melka's previous director of winemaking at Lail, Gemstone, Vineyard 29 and more.). Outstanding effort. 400 cases made.
