L'Ecole No. 41 Merlot Walla Walla Valley Seven Hills Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (blended with 12% each cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon; aged in all French oak, one-third new): Good bright, dark red. Nuanced but reticent nose combines cherry, mint and a whiff of cedary oak. Then sweet and juicy in the mouth, showing lovely definition to its intense red berry and spice flavors. Rather backward on the finish, displaying a strong structure and serious, youthfully drying tannins. This needs some time to knit but its strong fruit and subtle sweetness suggest that it will reward patience. (Nov/Dec 2012)
