The 2015 Estate Perigee Seven Hills Vineyard checks in as a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, aged 22 months in 40% new French oak. It sports a deep purple color as well as terrific notes of ripe plums, violets, blueberries, incense and lead pencil. Pure, beautifully concentrated, layered and elegant, it's another beautiful wine from this team that's made in good quantities.

Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 56% of this blend, with the balance Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It's locked up on first pour, with notes of barrel spice, dark chocolate, graphite, cassis, green herb and purple flower. The palate brings abundant cherry flavors backed by brawny, slightly astringent tannins. It shows a lot more tannic heft than this vineyard is often known for, needing significant time to settle in. Best after 2024.

Tobacco drenched in red wine” is how one taster described this Seven Hills blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot. Indeed, it’s so savory, with notes of cedar, tobacco and anise, that the plum-sauce and cassis notes took a day to arrive. It’s a mouthful, the flavors as dark and deep as balsamic syrup, the tobacco-like tannins acting as a vise on the tongue; for a ribeye.
