L’Ecole No 41 Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Walla Walla Valley, Washington State



Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Soft nose of blueberries, black plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, tobacco, dark coffee, earth, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth, light vegetables and tobacco leaf.

Tangy finish with green tannins and tangy raspberries.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley is starting to drink nicely now. Showing a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity, with some green notes, that show up as it opens up.

Needs time to open up properly. I gave it 90 minutes, but it might needs even longer.

Still young, but showing good potential. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Really nice with the double cream Brie cheese with wild mushrooms.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (35% new).

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$39.
