L'ECOLE NO. 41 Pepper Bridge Apogee 2014

94 Points

The most sweetly fruited, voluptuous and hedonist in the lineup, the 2014 Apogee Pepperbridge Vineyard is made from a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 15% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Franc. Sweet blackcurrants, licorice, crushed rocks and graphite notes flow to a sweetly fruited, full-bodied, pleasure bent beauty that has enough baby fat to warrant short term cellaring. It's going to have two decades of overall longevity.
