Wine Review: This very deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from L'Ecole opens with a black cherry and light menthol bouquet with hints of pine, violet, and leather. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and approachable. The flavor profile is mild red currant, black raspberry, and crushed stone dust blend with notes of cedar and black tea. We also detected hints of tart rhubarb and dark chocolate. The finish is dry, and its bold and dusty tannins build-up and stick around for quite some time. The Tasting Panel would suggest decanting this big boy red blend for a while in the near term before pairing it with a well-marbled ribeye steak or Roy’s rib roast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Perigee epitomizes this estate vineyard's distinctive cedar and dark fruit, framed by a structured elegance. It explodes with pretty aromas of spiced wild berries including cassis and boysenberry, along with tobacco, pencil lead, and licorice that are lifted by floral notes of spring flowers and Provençal herbs. The finish is complex and silky.
