Along the same lines as the Perigee, the 2012 Apogee Pepperbridge Vineyard has a slightly darker fruit profile to go with notes of graphite, crushed rock and roasted meats. It too has a full-bodied, structured, concentration and tannic feel, so short-term cellaring is advised. It will have two decades of longevity. The blend here is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc and 5% Malbec, with aging spanning 22 months in 50% new French oak. - Jeb Dunnuck

The aromas of tobacco leaf, herbs, milk chocolate, vanilla and dark cherries are generous on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The flavors are equal part rich and restrained, with a delightful sense of balance along with a light grip of tannins.

Totally different nose from the Perigee, with blueberry, blackberry and redcurrant scents complicated by violet, nutmeg and spicy tobacco. Densely packed and tight, showing a distinctly cooler quality and good peppery lift in the middle palate. Savory and dry but smooth and very long, with youthful tannins showing a dusty quality but avoiding austerity. The crop in 2012 was very light due to the November frost in 2011. Has the structure to support a graceful evolution in bottle.

Showcases a lifted and perfumed nose with violet aromas that hover above fresh cassis with hints of mocha and dusty minerality. Fresh on the palate with a core of juicy, ripe dark fruit. The floral notes persist subtly on the palate and add a delicate, sweet edge. A dusty minerality intertwines with the mouthwatering acidity and lasts through the finish. The tannins are soft, fine-grained, and well-integrated. Drinking deliciously well in its youth, this will continue to improve over the next 5-7 years.
