L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon 2010
"Rich in flavor and body, this wine shows a honey and lemon meringue flavor with hints of violets, fig, and melon. The barrel fermentation contributes a rich mouthfeel with a touch of vanilla and crisp Sauvignon acidity on the long finish. This wine is a blend of several Columbia Valley vineyards, including 37% Yakima Bend Ranch, 36% Klipsun, 18% Dionysus, and 9% Vanessa's Vineyard from here in the Walla Walla Valley."north-westwine.com
External Reviews for L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon
Grippy tannins give way to fleshy plum and currant fruit, shaded with hints of fennel and peach fuzz, lingering well. Best after 2014.
Moving away from the Bordeaux varieties, the 2010 Syrah Columbia Valley, which incorporates 20% Grenache, is a soft, plump and friendly Syrah that has excellent purity, solid aromatics (blackberry, raspberry, underbrush) and a short finish. It-s well made and should be consumed over the coming 3–4 years. Drink now–2016.
