L´Ecole Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard Walla Walla Valley Washington State 2015
Pepper Bridge is one of Walla Walla Valley's most recognized fields. With the Apogee wine, which L'Ecole has been producing since 1993, the field's characteristic dark, spicy fruit and robust structure are presented in high definition... and what vision! The wine is composed of several grapes, with Cabernet Sauvignon 56%, Merlo6 16%, Cabernet Franc14%, Malbec 7% and Petite Verdot 7% have been used for this amazing wine.
The family-owned l'Ecole wine house is housed in the Walla Walla Valley; an enclave bordered by the larger AVA, Colombia Valley in eastern Washington. There are many hours of sunshine here, and there is a long way between rain showers. In fact, the area gets up to 60 minutes more sunshine a day on average than Napa Valley! In turn, the valley is cooled down at night by the swallowing mountain air from the nearby Blue Mountains. The large temperature difference between night and day provides ideal conditions for fully ripe fruit that still has acidity and structure in good condition.
As a third generation winemaker, L'Ecole has both tradition and know-how, and over time the house has become the banner man for sustainable wine production in the region.
