Pepperbridge was founded in 1998 by Norm McKibben, Ray Goff, and Jean Francois Pellet. The name of the winery was taken from the only bridge to cross the Walla Walla River back in the days of covered wagons on the Oregon Trail. Grapes were sourced from estate vineyards in Pepperbridge and Seven Hills.
The Pepperbridge 2002 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet has aromas of strawberries, red cherry, blackberry, plum, mint, tea leaf, and cassis. On the palate, the lush mouthfeel of this full bodied wine is so elegant. There are intense flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, leather, and licorice. This is a very refined wine with a long velvet finish.
