L’Ecole N° 41 is recognized as one of Washington State’s top producers of premium Merlot and this estate vineyard blend represents our best. The elegance and old world structure of Seven Hills Vineyard adds complexity to the earthiness and minerality of the basalt soil from Ferguson.
Fractured basalt – Estate Ferguson Vineyard 36%
Wind-blown loess – Estate Seven Hills Vineyard 64%
This expressive Merlot reveals brooding aromatics of Bing cherry, fresh blackberry, cinnamon, savory cedar, and espresso completed with rose petals and a touch of sage. Its concentrated texture is laced with basalt-driven minerality, and notes of graphite, cocoa, and spice that are complemented by refined tannins leading to a fresh and focused finish.
