  • L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon (14% Sauvignon Blanc) carries a medium yellow colour and an inviting ginger-oak-gooseberry nose with a good dollop of lime rind. Entry is velvety-smooth, with just a hint of warmth, oaky spice overlaying s bed of gooseberry and fig. This is a very good Bordeaux-style white that recalls Hunter Valley whites from Aust...

  • L'Ecole 41 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Snoothrank:

    L'École No. 41 in Lowden WA produced a very fine Cabernet Sauvignon in 2015 at a reasonable price (in WA, not here in Canada, from whence I write); the robe is tarry-red, and the aroma is of earthy forest floor, plum, cake spice and cassis - Euro in style but with more promise of purity. Bordeaux-like entry with cherry cola, blackberry (cassis)... Read More

  • L'Ecole No 41 Columbia Valley Old Vines Chenin Blanc 2017

    Snoothrank:

    This Chenin Blanc from old vines in the Columbia Valley (WA) is of very high quality: lightest yellow in the glass, its nose is dominated by wild flower honey, lime and honeysuckle. Entry is smooth, gentle and with a hint of ginger, almond and green fruit or berry. Finish is medium with a touch of sweetness. Note to winemaker: don't pull out t... Read More

  • DV, Lynn and I managed to take a peek at Vessel this afternoon while cruising Oak Bay (sorry, I did not want to invite myself over... left you to recover from a week of work instead).  But on the little store in that quiet little commercial spot at the junction of Pandora and Fort, it is of, I would say, medium size, stock-wise, but owning a gre...

  • L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The 2012 Semillon (with 15% Sauvignon Blanc) from the esteemed L'Ecole No. 41 is quite a treat: the colour is lightly golden, and the nose an invigorating, spicy, nose-twitching, gooseberry. Entry is quite luscious and mature, with more white berry confit, musk and white pepper. Delicious. Much like Hunter Valley (NSW, Australia), only somewh... Read More

  • Had this tasty merlot with rib eye tonight - 2013 L'Ecole No. 41 Estate Merlot Walla Walla ValleyThis was very, very good. The fruit was a confluence dark berry, plum and raspberry with cocoa. A little tart, acceptably so, evened out tannins with a core of savory notes and good finishing acidity. Well done. Quote Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Brooding blackberry and black currant aromas with earthy notes of pencil lead and baking spice. Continues to be dry and rich on the palate with a melting dark chocolate mid palate that surprises with acidic notes of tomato leaf and a finish of red fruit. Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Columbia Valley Merlot 1997

    Snoothrank:

    The color is a nice even purple with some amber around the edges and very nice clarity. The nose presents a wonderful Bordeaux-esque combination of ripe plum, blackberry and leather, over a good bit of funk, with just a hint of mint and dried herbs. The taste is just fantastic, with still bright fruit notes of plum and blackberry that burst fo... Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Pepper Bridge Vineyard Apogee 1998

    Snoothrank:

    For being nearly old enough to vote, this wine seems quite vibrant, with a lovely garnet color in the glass with just a hint of amber at the edges. The nose presents aromas of leather, cedar, oak and just a hint of musty peat reminiscent of a classic Bordeaux "funk." The taste brings forth some bright fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry col... Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Columbia Valley Merlot 1998

    Snoothrank:

    I decanted the wine for about an hour before my first pour and it's a nice garnet color with a hint of amber along the edges and great clarity. The nose presents lovely aromas of ripe berries, blackberry, cherry and raspberry over some earthy notes of leather and cedar. The taste is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux, with some ripe black fruit up... Read More
