92pointsL'Ecole No. 41 2017 Estate Grown Merlot-Cabernet Franc (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Cellar Selection

This wine is equal parts Ferguson and Seven Hills Vineyards and is similarly split between these two varieties. The aromas are locked up at present, with notes of graphite, cedar, barrel spice, coffee, dried herb, cherry, cranberry and anise coming out with coaxing. Plump, ripe fruit flavors follow, accented by vibrant acidity and enough tannic structure to go the distance. It flat out impresses. Best 2023–2033. Sean P. Sullivan
