89pointsL'Ecole No. 41 2016 Estate Grown Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Faint aromas of dried herb, cigar leaf, mocha and raspberry are followed by light, tart cranberry flavors backed by firm, dry, somewhat gritty tannins framed by a blast of impressive acidity. It's very tannic on its own but should fit in well at the dinner table. Pair it with pork chops with a cherry compote. It has an extremely long life in front of it. Give it a multiday extended decant if drinking before 2025. Sean P. Sullivan
