Incorporating the most Cabernet Sauvignon of the special cuvees, the 2013 Apogee Pepperbridge Vineyard comes entirely from the Pepper Bridge Vineyard in Walla Walla and is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc, all of which was aged 22 months in 50% new French oak. Its deep purple color is followed by lots of blackcurrant and black raspberry fruits, toasted spice, licorice and floral aromas and flavors. These give way to a full-bodied, structured 2013 that has solid mid-palate depth and building tannin on the finish. Give bottles 3-4 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following 10-15 years. -Jeb Dunnuck

Ripe but high-pitched aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, black licorice, anise, leather and tobacco, lifted by minty high tones. Impressively broad and ripe; much more horizontal than the Perigee, spreading out to saturate the palate. Longer on the aftertaste too, with more fruit sweetness to buffer the chewy tannins. Serious aging potential here. Clubb noted that this vineyard does especially well in warmer years, and he likes the 2014 version even better than this wine. -Stephen Tanzer
