Pepperbridge cabernet

Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Pepper Bridge Winery

Deliciously pure and supple, this wine is layered with seductive mocha and espresso laced oak wrapped around a dense core of currant, blackberry compote, licorice, with hints of crushed rock, chocolate and tobacco leaf. On the palate, this offering is showing dark plum, velvety raspberry notes with a long, persistent finish and a tremendous depth.

Reviews

  • "93 points. Demonstrably fruit-driven, a fresh, pure shot of blackberry flavor framed by dark, earthy tannins." (Wine & Spirits)
  • "92 points. This flagship wine from Pepper Bridge is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon with 9% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Cabernet France and 2% Petit Verdot. Aged in 44% new French oak for 19 months. Aromatics are predominantly black fruit, tar, bramble and coconut. The depth on the palate is impressive with flavors of baked blackberry pie, milk chocolate, pipe tobacco and fresh asphalt. Complexity will continue to improve over the next 5-10 years. (Best 2017-2027)." (International Wine Report)
