|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||L'Ecole No 41|
With its classic Cabernet profile, this expressive wine shows layers of dark fruit, black pepper, and espresso, accented by an array of floral notes, including violet and lavender. With blackberry, dark cherry, and cassis on the palate, it is framed with fine tannins which carry through to a flavorful finish.
A handsome red, multilayered and expressive, showing lively blackberry, tobacco and crushed stone accents that finish with well-framed tannins. Drink now through 2030. 6,890 cases made.
The aromas bring notes of dark chocolate, plum, herb and cherry, along with a sprinkling of spices. The palate shows polish and intensity. There's structural heft behind it all, both acid and tannin. Decant if drinking in the near term.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is slightly more focused and elegant compared to the Walla Walla release, but both are beautiful wines. Cassis, black raspberries, spice box, and dried herbs all define the nose, and is has ripe tannins and a balanced, elegance profile that will keep for a decade.
