2006 L’Ecole No. 41 Merlot, Columbia Valley
L’Ecole has been producing Merlot since 1983 and after all of these years, they still have the “touch.” With the addition of 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon the nose is spicy showing a palate of dark cherries, plums and brambleberries. And last but not least, a long finish of chocolate and pepper.
