Perigee exemplifies this vineyard’s characteristic cedary, black cherry, richly structured elegance. Alluring aromas of cigar box and red currant are accented with flavors of cassis, truffle and earth, on a chalky tannin finish.
One of the standouts in the lineup is the 2013 Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard Estate, which is all from the Seven Hills Vineyard and is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that includes 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec and the balance Petit Verdot. Aged in 50% new French oak, this full-bodied beauty offers sensational notes of dark fruits, chocolate and smoked herbs, as well as terrific purity, building tannin and a great finish. It will be better in 4-5 years and keep through 203.
