L’Ecole N° 41 has been producing Pepper Bridge Vineyard Apogee since 1993. Apogee represents our best effort to capture this vineyard’s distinctive and characteristic spicy bold aromas, dark fruit flavors, robust tannins, and rich structure.
This single-vineyard Bordeaux blend presents intense aromas of black currant, fresh tobacco, rose petals, cocoa, and earth with subtle hints of graphite and spearmint. Flavors of mocha, nutmeg, and thyme are featured prominently on the elegantly structured frame. The palate is adorned with wild blackberry, baking spices, and fine-grained tannins that carry through to a robust and perfectly balanced finish.
