The 2018 Vintage Purlieu Napa Valley Cabernet is remarkably stunning, and when you consider the list of fruit sources that they produce single-vineyard wines from, which includes; Beckstoffer To-Kalon, Georges III, Missouri Hopper and Sugarloaf, it’s an easy decision to try their Napa Cab which is a cuvée of multiple sites…

This phenomenal wine is made by Winemaker Julien Fayard, who learned his craft at Chateau Lafite Rothschild, and then gained even more valuable experience as Director of Winemaking for Philippe Melka at elite Napa Valley producers like Lail, Gemstone, Hundred Acre, Vineyard 29, and Mastery…

* Winemaker Julien Fayard Originally from Provence, France is crushing it in CaliHiWines Stylee! Julien is one of Napa Valley’s most respected consulting winemakers producing California varietals with a Signature French finesse… like, ooh la la! With critical acclaim saying, “vibrant and loaded with personality. I loved it” and “… beautiful finish… hedonistic, sexy beauty” plus “Full-bodied, rich and decadent…the palate is beautifully poised…” My friends, This is one of the most beautiful Cabs we have tasted from the 2018 Vintage, and I believe the critics have under-rated this Gorgeous Gem.

 With Purlieu’s rapidly expanding Cult Wine following, a rock-solid reputation for excellence along with the very strong reviews, I highly recommend adding a case to your cellar.



94VIN | Tasting Notes from Antonio GALLONI, “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is fabulous. Silky tannins and plush fruit wrap around the palate in a super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon that has so much to give. Bright acids perk up the blackberry jam, mocha, licorice, spice and gravel flavors. The 2018 is fresh, vibrant and loaded with personality. I loved it.” VINOUS 94 POINTS

JD93 | Tasting Notes From Jeb Dunnuck, “The appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a beauty and well worth seeking out for those who love up-front, opulent Napa Valley Cabernet. Lots of cassis, blueberries, violets, cedary herbs, and tobacco notes define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, with a rounded, expansive texture, sweet tannins, and a beautiful finish. Drink this hedonistic, sexy beauty over the coming 10-15 years.” Jeb Dunnuck 93 POINTS

93WA | Tasting Notes From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon comes galloping out of the glass with energetic scents of ripe black cherries, fresh black berries and blackcurrant cordial plus nuances of unsmoked cigars, cedar chest and pencil lead with a waft of wild sage. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the palate is beautifully poised with bags of freshness countering the concentrated flavors and a fine-grained frame, finishing long with a minty kick.” ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS
