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... 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. -Jay Miller

Polished vibrant and distinctive for the guava accents around a supple core of cherry and spice all of it lingering as the finish revs up. Shows some cedar notes as well. This one has pizzazz. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot... Polished vibrant and distinctive for the guava accents around a supple core of cherry and spice all of it lingering as the finish revs up. Shows some cedar notes as well.

Silky on entry then thick sweet and full without coming across as heavy. Distinctly broader and lusher in the mouth-not to mention sweeter-than the two cabernet releases from this winery. The currant plum and chocolate flavors are complicated by a light herbal element. The tannins reach the front teeth on the persistent firmly structured finish.
