Outstanding. Complex, full-bodied, and seductive. Pink grapefruit, white peach, mandarin, and honeysuckle. Beautiful balance and long-lasting, satisfying finish. — 10 hours ago

10’Lail Mole Hill. Nose of spring flowers. Blackberry, black currant, white chocolate. Classic Howell with age. BIG middle palate, runs right through the back. Just starting to show its age. Touch of sweet tannins, low acidity. Won’t get any better. Enjoy over the next 5/8 years. — 2 months ago

I’ve had the 2007 & 2010 for 5-8 years. Purchase them originally from the winery and then from an auction house. Down to my 1 bottle of 2010. @Buddy G

For those of you not familiar with Le Pich, I took this from their site...Le Pich, which is the Wappo Indian term for "golden eagle," is the sister label of Napa Valley's esteemed Purlieu Wines. The wines are crafted by rising star winemaker Julien Fayard. Originally from France, Julien has lived in the Napa Valley since 2006, when he and his wife agreed to settle down by “meeting halfway” — between his home in France… and hers in Sonoma. In France, Julien worked in both Provence and Bordeaux, where he defined his core winemaking style at the exalted first growth Château Lafite-Rothschild (he even lived in Lafite’s grand château for a period) as well as at Smith Haut Lafitte. In Napa, Julien worked at Quintessa before joining Atelier Melka, where he spent five years as the Director of Winemaking. He has worked with the likes of; Lail Vineyards, Gemstone, Dalla Valle, and more.

Le Pich wines are some of the best values we've found in Napa Valley.

Kenzo Estate

Asatsuyu Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Compared to the Lail Georgia SB, this one definitely is lighter bodied, but definitely has a nice, crisp tropical Style. Was getting lots of peach and nectarine. Key lime. Very satisfying. Would be a Sauvignon Blanc worthy to put in the regular summer rotation. QPR on this wine is a touch on the poor side. I think this one will hold for 5 years or so. — 2 years ago

Excellent effort from these guys n gals, as always. Drink or hold, but it’s in the zone right now.
Regal tannins give way to moderate acidity. Loving the roasted coffee bean notes, combined with blueberry jam, and a hint of cinnamon. Finishes complex and sweet.

This is Purlieu’s sister winery. We were the second tasting given in their new facilities just on the edge of Napa as you approach from American Canyon.

We started our visit with a splash of their 17 Sauvignon Blanc as we toured their new facilities.

A hybrid of tropical & dry style. It has understated tropicals of mango, pineapple, white citrus, peach, cut grass, round acidity and nicely polished finish.
