Perigee exemplifies this vineyard’s characteristic cedary, black cherry, richly structured elegance. Alluring aromas of mint, cigar box and raspberry, are accented with flavors of red currant, praline, truffle and earth, on a chalky tannin finish.

This is just over half Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The aromas of herb, barrel spice, black cherry and coffee need time to reveal themselves fully. The dark cherry and blackberry flavors show richness and polish. Give it an extended decant if opening in the near term but it will be worth it. It will be best from 2020 to 2027.

The 2012 Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard knocks it out of the park with its notes of currants, wild herbs, tobacco leaf and toasted bread and spice. Full-bodied, structured, concentrated and layered, it needs 3-4 years of cellaring. The blend here is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot, that was aged 22 months in 50% new French oak.

A swarm of fine tannins eddies around a supple core of fresh currant, plum and spice flavors, coming together harmoniously as the finish lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best after 2017.
