L'Ecole No. 41 Merlot Columbia Valley 2013

Member Review by rckr1951:

Plenty of fruit - red and black with a spicey nuance that developes, violets and other floral aromas. Chewy tannins and good acidityleave a medium length aftertaste. 89 points - drink now - Paul

Well, it has been a long day and I need to relax, so what better way than to enjoy a glass of wine from my favorite winery, L'Ecole No. 41! To celebrate the end of the day, I've decided to open a bottle of the 2008 Columbia Valley Merlot, a nice wine that is really a more basic wine made from some of the best grapes of the region, but done in a way that maintains the character of the wine as a purely "L'Ecole" wine. This is also appropriate given that I just received my spring wine club selection from the winery last week (can't wait to open those eventually, but you know I'm patient when it comes to wine).

The wine is a lovely bright ruby color in the glass, with a nose of rich fruit, blackberries, cherries and plum accented by some Asian spice and vanilla. The taste is wonderfully fruit forward with rich berries plum and cherry flavors that transitions to wonderful flavors of black tea, dried herbs and chalk mid palate. The finish is wonderfully dry and mineral, with a last wisp of smokey black fruit at the end, with flavors reminiscent of the classic Bordeaux "funk" that we all know and love. see the full review on my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2013/12/2002-l-no-41-columbia-valley-merlot.html
