I'm no Dr. Steve Brule - L'Ecole 41 Apogee

Ever seen an idiot do a video review? Lucky you! Tonight is your night! Woot Woot!

Tonight I'll be reviewing L'Ecole 41's Apogee (from The Left Coast Guy... a generous wine benefactor, fellow wine nut, and all around amazing guy also featured over there to the... left!) So, on with the review! (I've never done a wine review on cam and I don't have a fancy studio and you're lucky I didn't get wasted (much) in the process, dammit!)

In the video you will hear a reference to Dr. Steve Brule. For those of you who aren't familiar with this character, or John C. Riley, I'll link you here to the very best wine review I've seen in my ENTIRE life. 

Apogee 2008 Pepper Bridge - (From the L'Ecole 41 website)

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc

Boldly aromatic, this sophisticated and complex wine has aromas of spice and earthy hints of sweet tobacco and leather. Dense dark fruit is wrapped in nuances of smoke, cocoa, and mint with gripping tannins as the finish persists.

Apogee is the point in the orbit of the moon that is the greatest distance from the earth; the farthest point or apex. This name reflects all that we were trying to accomplish with the wine, reaching the ultimate in quality.

Giant thanks again to Dean at The Left Coast Guy in DC for the product to review. LOVED IT!  I know it's late, but is anyone else in the mood for prime rib? Just me? Have the wine and then let's talk!
