This is another Napa Cab that fires on all cylinders at a very friendly price point. Winemaker Julian Fayard is definitely considered one of the best around having grown up in Bordeaux and worked at Lafite Rothschild before moving to Napa to set his roots down as Phillipe Melkas director of winemaking before he set off on his own quest. The 2016 Le Pich is a needle in a haystack where vintages that followed didn’t perform as well as this beauty. Let’s hope the 2019 is as good as the 16 turned out. One can only hope...
