L'Ecole No. 41 Pepper Bridge Vineyard Apogee

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) This bold, sophisticated and complex wine has dark, aromas of black cherry, cassis, and cola nut, with hints of sweet tobacco. Dense dark fruit is wrapped in nuances of cocoa and mint with firm tannins on a persistent finish.

    Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. Apogee, a blend of cabernet sauvignon (46 percent), merlot (42), malbec and cabernet franc, shows little at first-Pepper Bridge always takes its time. After a few minutes in the glass, a savory brown-bread spice and pipe tobacco scent emerges, along with a taut core of black fig. While youthfully reticent, this is a formidable wine, balanced, composed, poised, just waiting for its moment. Cellar a year and serve with roast lamb.
