2006 L'Ecole No. 41 "Apogee" Pepper Bridge Vineyard Walla Walla Valley

SKU #1052488

94 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard is 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 8% Malbec, and 4% Cabernet Franc. A saturated purple color, it has a brooding nose of sandalwood, pencil lead, spice box, and assorted black fruits. It is the most concentrated, complex, and intense of the L'Ecole reds with darker, layered fruit and greater aging potential. Drink this superb effort between 2015 and 2031." (10/09) 93 points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Apogee, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (46 percent), Merlot (42), Malbec and Cabernet Franc, shows little at first-Pepper Bridge always takes its time. After a few minutes in the glass, a savory brown-bread spice and pipe tobacco scent emerges, along with a taut core of black fig. While youthfully reticent, this is a formidable wine, balanced, composed, poised, just waiting for its moment. Cellar a year and serve with roast lamb." (10/09) 91 points from Wine Spectator: "Dark and distinctive, hanging its ripe plum, currant and cherry fruit on a rangy, wide-open frame that lets the flavors mingle with hints of olive and pepper as the finish rolls on easily. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2014. 1,748 cases made." (Oct.15, 2009)
