This vineyard, planted in the terraced remnants of ice-age flood deposits, is one of the Walla Walla
Valley's most reputable vineyards. Apogee was the first wine produced from this vineyard and shows
its characteristic spicy, bold and dark fruit flavors with a rich structure, well-integrated tannins and a
A cool spring, followed by a cool fruit set in June set the stage for lower yields than normal in 2006.
Light crops tend to get lighter, and an abundance of sunshine and heat units in July resulted in small
berry size and cluster weights. A mild August helped extend the late season ripening period into
September and October. The overall season crop load was lower than normal, at 2 ½ tons per acre.
Our traditional cool long harvest with no rainfall resulted in fabulous fruit quality, with bright clean
aromatics and acidity in the whites and vibrant extraction and rich color in the red wines.
Boldly aromatic, this wine has spicy aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, earthy hints of sweet tobacco and leather, and
smoky dark fruit packed with chocolate, mint and cherry finish.
"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.
The Wine Advocate
"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."
Wine & Spirits
"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. Drink now through 2014."
