Winemaker Notes

For over 30 years, L’Ecole has built long term partnerships with the oldest and most proven vineyards, providing access to some of the best fruit in the Columbia Valley. With average vine age of more than 20 years, this wine shows a classic Cabernet Sauvignon profile of firm structure, integrated tannins, and dark expressive fruit.

With its classic varietal Cabernet profile, this focused and integrated wine shows layers of dark fruit, espresso, violet and herbal notes. Layers of plum, blackberry and cassis mingle with dusty, fine tannins through a balanced finish.

About Winery

L’Ecole N° 41 is a third-generation family-owned, artisan winery located in the historic Frenchtown School depicted on our label.  Founded in 1983, we were the third winery established in the Walla Walla Valley.  We have become one of the most prominent and visible Walla Walla Valley wineries with national and international distribution.

Our focus is to produce ultra-premium, distinctive wines that reflect the unmistakable typicity of Washington State and the unique terroir of our Walla Walla Valley vineyards.  We are engaged in growing and making 100% of our wine.  Each bottle is handcrafted with a commitment to quality in the vineyards and the winery.  More than three decades of winemaking experience, ongoing investments in our Walla Walla Estate Ferguson and Seven Hills Vineyards, and long-term relationships with many of the most prominent vineyards in Washington State are central to our well-known reputation for quality and consistency across our wine portfolio.

Today we are at the forefront of sustainable farming in the Walla Walla Valley, notably with our Estate Ferguson and Estate Seven Hills Vineyards, both of which are certified sustainable and certified Salmon Safe.

L’Ecole is one of the most honored wineries in Washington State and has garnered national and international accolades over the years for producing superior quality wines.  We are proud to be recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine as a Top 100 Winery of the Year fifteen times.  In 2014, Decanter awarded our 2011 Estate Ferguson the International Trophy for Best Bordeaux Blend in the World!  In 2016, the 2013 Ferguson won the International Trophy for Best New World Bordeaux Blend from Six Nations Wine Challenge.

91 Wine Spectator

Sleek and precise, with expressive blackberry, espresso and licorice flavors that take on richness toward the refined tannins. Drink now through 2024.

91 Wine & Spirits

Dark as coal when first poured, this wine has a subtle, earthbound power that takes time in the glass to emerge. With its notes of plum skin and fig, and dark, muscular oak component, it’s a well-priced cabernet for ribs.

90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Wafting from the glass with notes of pencil shavings, black currants, dried herbs and loamy soil, the 2015 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and layered, with a good core of fruit, fine-grained but youthfully firm structuring tannins and a sappy finish. It's a persuasively characterful and complete wine from a challenging vintage.

90 James Suckling

Blackberries and black olives with some crushed tile undertones. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. Fine and easy. Drink now.
