L'Ecole No. 41 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard 2010

L'Ecole No. 41 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard 750ml 2010        
Sku: 1878662*

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.

Along the same lines and focusing on Pepper Bridge Vineyard, the 2010 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Franc that sees the same treatment in the winery as the Perigee) offers up a deeper, mineral-laced profile of black currant, tobacco, earth and crushed stone. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with great mid-palate depth and building tannin, it too needs a handful of years to round into shape and will have an easy 15 years of ultimate longevity. Drink 2016-2025.

Broad and expressive, light-weight and expansive in the mouth, this offers loam and mineral accents to the dark plum and licorice flavors, stepping gently on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020.H.S.
