Producer: l'Ecole No. 41
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
Region: Walla Walla Valley
90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2012
(60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 7% malbec and 3% cabernet franc): Bright red-ruby. Musky redcurrant, red cherry, plum, tobacco leaf and dried flowers, with hints of woodsmoke and spices; distinctly claret-like. Then rich and plump if a bit youthfully aggressive, with a restrained sweetness to its chocolate, plum and floral flavors. Finishes broad and classically dry, with a smooth dusting of tannins and very good length. I'd give this a couple years in the cellar to round out.
