Product Description

W&S 93 WS 91 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - Sourced from all three of L’Ecole’s estate vineyards, this includes a small but important contribution of fruit from Milton Freewater, giving the wine a classic Rocks back note. After a day, the Walla Walla elements come into balance, the scents of cedar and sun-dried tomato bearing a burnished-wood texture. But what lasts here is a mineral core, perhaps a contribution from their newest vineyard, Ferguson, up on the SeVein basalt ridge. It’s a lot of wine for $40, and built to cellar.

According to Wine Spectator - Ripe and expressive, this upright style delivers cherry, currant and black fruit flavors on a firm frame. The finish comes together harmoniously, echoing plum and spice notes enticingly. Best from 2017 through 2022.

According to Wine Advocate - Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a number of vineyards in Walla Walla, the 2012 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon offers lots of jammy blackberry and black raspberry fruit, creamy licorice, grilled bread and spice in a medium to full-bodied, balanced, textured package. Given the depth through the mid-palate and the sweet tannin on the finish, I suspect this could be drunk anytime over the coming decade or more.

According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, blueberry, black plum, licorice and violet on the nose. Juicy, tight and on the lean side, showing some distinctly peppery herbal qualities. Tannins are a bit dry on the tongue. This distinctly chewy wine will need time in bottle to harmonize. It may eventually merit 90 points if it puts on more weight. 14.5%
