L’ECOLE NO. 41 Merlot 2017

(Walla Walla, Washington) $36

At about $7 a glass, L’Ecole No. 41’s merlot can’t be beat. The rich, juicy flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, and cherry are exuberant. And after a few minutes in your glass, the wine opens up with notes of roses, violets, and spices. This is not the dark, heavy side of merlot, but rather, the juicy, red-fruit side that begs for a roast chicken. L’Ecole No. 41 is a small, third generation, family-owned, winery located in the historic 1870 Frenchtown School (l’ecole means school in French) depicted on the label. (14.5% abv)
