Description

In the old world (i.e. Bordeaux) it is traditional to produce the very best wine from a given vineyard site, regardless of which varietal dominates that blend. Since 1993, we have produced such a vineyard blend from Pepper Bridge Vineyard called Apogee. In most vintages, this wine is near equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc added for complexity. Planted in ice-age flood deposits, Pepper Bridge Vineyard Apogee shows spicy rich aromas of nutmeg and clove with earthy hints of sweet tobacco, leather and big dark berry fruit.

Boldly aromatic, with aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, earthy hints of sweet tobacco and leather, and smoky dark fruit packed with chocolate, mint and cherry fruit on a richly balanced and integrated finish.

The fruit for the 2007 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard matured 2 weeks later than the Seven Hills fruit. It is an almost identical blend with the exception of 6% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Franc and was aged in 50% new oak. Aromas of toasty oak, tobacco, leather, Asian spices, black currant, and black cherry leads to a more structured offering that will require 4-6 years of cellaring. Well-balanced, intense, and mouth-filling, it will amply reward those with patience. ”
