L'ECOLE NO. 41 Pepper Bridge Apogee 2014

92 Points

A blend of one-half cabernet, thirty percent merlot, and the rest malbec and cabernet franc, this wine gives off an impression of loess even in its aromatics, where scents of red fruit seem sprinkled with wind-borne dust. The red plum and red cherry flavors meet a leafy, vinous, turfy savor, needing cellar time before unleashing it on a steak.
