L'Ecole 41 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a beautiful ruby color in the glass with just a bit of opacity. The nose is quite nice, with a combination of ripe plums, blackberries and tart cherry intermingled with some green herb notes. The taste is quite nice, with a bit of cherry compote and smoke at the outset, transitioning to some tobacco and earthy peat notes midpalate. The tannins are well integrated and nicely structured to support the long, supple and very dry finish. This wine reminds me a lot of the more classic Cabernets that you found 20 years ago, with a lot more finesse than many wine you find today.
