L'Ecole No. 41 Red Bordeaux Blend Walla Walla Valley Perigee Estate Seven Hills Vineyard 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself is a classic Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), Merlot (16%), Cabernet Franc (12%), Malbec (4%) and Petit Verdot (4%). The color in the glass is a rich garnet and the nose brings forth notes of leather, oak and earthy spice, the type of aromas that cause you to enter a state of deep relaxation (at least they do that to me anyway!). The taste is at once fruity and earthy, with tastes of ripe berries and plums washing over your palate, then giving way to cedar and chalky gravel. The tannins as a bit more subdued than I've noticed on previous vintages, giving rise to a smooth, deliciously dry finish.
