Purlieu Le Pich Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
A deep ruby robe, with darker black fruit and mineral aromas on the nose. The palate brightens into a ripe strawberry, raspberry and boysenberry core, layered with notes of black licorice and nutmeg. Fluid and smooth, this wine blends rich fruit complexity, elegant freshness, and well-integrated tannins. This vintage is delightful at release, but also worthy of cellaring another 2-6 years.
James Suckling: 90
Crushed violets, blackcurrant leaf and blackberries on the nose, as well as pine resin and orange zest. It’s medium-bodied and fresh with sleek tannins. Lots of spiced berries and citrus peel, but linear. Drink or hold.
