Congratulations to L'Ecole No. 41 winery for receiving top honors in a wine tasting sponsored by Washington CEO magazine. The winery's 2002 Apogee (a red Bordeaux Style blend) scored 92 points out of a 100. The judges were 10 of Washington State's top sommeliers.
Apogee is a Bordeaux-style blend with dark earthy flavors of tobacco, leather and rich flavors of cherry and plum. Filtered and fined at a minium. An excellent wine to give some cellar age to. About 7-10 years. Like the meaning of apogee - this wine is the highest point - the apex.
