95pts James Suckling

Attractive aromas of ripe blackberries and cassis-liquor, together with notes of hazelnut chocolate, spice box and overturned earth. So dense and meaty, with full body and a velvety texture. The tannins are ripe and refined, yet still tight, and need some time to mellow. Its big and wide on the palate. Complex and lingering. 54% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 12% cabernet franc, 6% malbec and 4% petit verdot. Drink from 2026.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard Estate, a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot, presents a captivating array of aromas, including black cherry, blackberry jus, chocolate-covered blueberries, graphite, resinous purple flowers and baked earth. This medium to full-bodied wine offers a fresh, complex palate with ripe, succulent, fine-grained tannins that grip and persist through the finish. It promises to remain food friendly until its 15th birthday. Decanting is recommended. It was barrel aged for 22 months in 40% new French oak.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

Grippy tannins, crisp acidity and a chew toy of a texture. Its aromas of blueberry pancakes with powdered sugar, coffee and a bouquet of Hidcote lavender and lilacs is like a Mother's Day breakfast scene. The flavors of dark chocolate-coated blackberries and balsa are equally compelling

Winemaker Notes

Perigee epitomizes this Estate vineyard’s distinctive cedar and dark fruit, framed by a structured elegance. It explodes with aromas of spiced blackberry and boysenberry, tobacco and licorice, lifted by floral notes of violets and Provençal herbs. Velvety on the palate, it concludes with a complex and silky finish.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec
