Technical Notes (64% Cabernet Sauvignon/16% Merlot/12% Cabernet Franc/4% Malbec/4% Petit Verdot). The flagship cuvee of L’Ecole No. 41, the grapes were hand-picked from the oldest and most distinguished estate blocks. The fruit was gently crushed into 1.5 and 5 ton open-topped stainless steel fermentors, manually punched down and moved from one vessel to another using gravity. Racked to small French oak barrels (50% new), the wine aged for 22 months and was racked five times.

Additional Notes Seven Hills Vineyard, plantedin the wind-blown glacial loess of geologically young,mineral rich soils, is one of the Walla Walla Valley’smost acclaimed vineyards.With the expansion of the vineyard in the 1990’s,L’Ecole No 41 became a vineyard partner withLeonetti Cellar and Pepper Bridge Winery. In June2004 Wine & Spirits Magazine named it "One ofTen Great Vineyards in the World.”

The unique features of Seven Hills Vineyard contribute significantly to the vineyard’scharacteristic rich elegance, earthy structure,seductive aromas and complex, silky finish.As our Estate vineyard, producing morethan a third of our total production, we felt itonly fitting to hand-select our oldest and mostdistinguished blocks to produce Perigee, a wineas exceptional as the vineyard.
