L'Ecole No. 41 2008 Seven Hills Vineyard Estate Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Cellar Selection

L'Ecole is one of the three partners in the Seven Hills vineyard, and sources its grapes from some of the oldest vines. The blend includes 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, tight and spicy at first, then opening into a deeply flavored, brambly wine with a vivid mix of berry and stone. Firm tannins anchor it solidly and the overall structure suggests it could age for at least a decade, maybe two. Paul Gregutt
