L’Ecole No 41 Merlot 2007

Another wine from the Calibrium hosted L’Ecole tasting event where they showcased 8 wines from the Columbia Valley in Washington. None of these wines are available at the LCBO so you will have to buy a case from them 🙂

This wine is 81% Merlot, 11% Cab Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cab Sauv. On the nose the varietal Merlot comes through with some plum. On the mid pallet is lots of lovely dry pucker power with black fruits dominating. You can really appreciate the cab Franc and cab sauv. The finish has some tannins and slight bit of bitterness but nothing too nasty. I would give it a 90 or so. Quite a nice wine. $36 available in cases of 12x750ml.
