Boldly aromatic, this sophisticated and complex wine has aromas of spice and earthy hints of sweet tobacco and leather. Dense dark fruit is wrapped in nuances of smoke, cocoa, and mint with gripping tannins as the finish persists.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc
A bit tough in texture, but the pure blueberry and currant fruit comes through clearly, driving through a layer of chewy tannins to persist nicely on the meaty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2018.
The 2008 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard is made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 8% Malbec, and 3% Cabernet Franc aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak. Balsam wood, graphite, cinnamon, clove, espresso, violets, black currant, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a structured, savory, incipiently complex blend that will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring. This balanced, lengthy effort offers a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2028.
A Cabernet-dominated, Bordeaux-style blend, this peppery red has a complex mix of earth and spice scents around tart red fruit. Notes of toast and cinnamon, sharp acidity, and tannins with residual green tea flavors keep the finish interesting.
Red wines grown at Pepper Bridge often take their time to open, like this vintage of Apogee, which is in hibernation at the moment. Decant it and the wine begins to yield savory notes—tobacco, tea, dried chocolate—while the scent of fruit remains faint. The wine comes to life on the palate, where it feels poised even while unformed. Give this at least a year in the cellar.
Good full, deep red. Aromas of raspberry and sandalwood. Sweet, fat and full, but with a firm mineral spine and plenty of sweet tannins giving shape and lift to this velvety blend. The slightly tough, medicinal finish really calls for patience.
