Tasting Notes

With an elegant, old world structure, this sophisticated Cabernet shows savory aromas of bouquet garni, rose petal, and cocoa. A robust core of blackberry and plum with notes of black currant and cigar box are framed with polished tannins on a rich, harmonious finish.

92 points – International Wine Report

The 2014 L'Ecole No. 41 Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely showing, which was aged for 22 months in 40% new French oak prior to bottling. The wine is sourced from the Seven Hills, Loess, Summit View, Yellow Jacket, Stone Valley, Ferguson and Pepper Bridge Vineyards. Aromas of dark fruits mingle with milk chocolate shavings and anise on the nose. The mid-palate weight is fantastic, yielding flavors of Milk chocolate, blackberry pie and anise which expand through the finish.

91 points, Wine Enthusiast

This wine is 100% Cabernet, coming from Seven Hills, Loess, Summit View, Yellow Jacket, Stone Valley, Ferguson and Pepper Bridge vineyards. Locked-up aromas of barrel spice, toast, herb, vanilla and dark fruit give way to rich but well balanced black-fruit flavors. Lightly grainy tannins offer sufficient support.

 91 points, Wine & Spirits 

This powerful cabernet is a blend from multiple sources, including Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge and Ferguson vineyards. It leads with scents of carob and blackberry, giving way to darker, more fig-like flavors. It stays on the rails with a finessed tannic payload and just enough acidity to keep it aloft.
