Simply stated, Perigee exemplifies
elegance, the essence of our Estate
Seven Hills Vineyard. A blend of cabernet sauvignon,
merlot and cabernet franc, it shows smooth, silky red cherry and
blackberry fruit, with rich floral and spicy aromas of cinnamon and
mocha on a vivid, earthy mineral finish.
Given the distinctive differences between
Pepper Bridge Vineyard and Seven Hills Vineyard,
it only seemed appropriate to name this wine Perigee.
We were intrigued by the reference in the definition,
of "being near the earth,” as one of this wine’s
characteristic attributes is an earthy structure. Secondly,
the vineyard is managed with environmentally sound
and sustainable practices.
