2016 L'Ecole No. 41 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1460426 91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very attractive cabernet sauvignon that has freshness and moderately dry tannins that nicely support the medium to full body. The finish has a lot of discreet herbal notes that add interest and make it even more food-friendly. Drink now. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Cassis, plum, blueberry, graphite and smoky oak on the nose, plus hints of dusty sage and tobacco leaf. More easygoing in style than the Cabernet Franc Seven Hills (in spite of possessing sound acidity), with its supple flavors of dark fruits, spices and herbs in harmony from the outset. Finishes with refined tannins and rising berry persistence. This very well balanced Cabernet is drinkable right now as its fruit is in the foreground today. (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Precise and well-built, with elegantly expressive black cherry, dusty dried herb and spice flavors that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is all Cabernet Sauvignon and comes from a mix of sites in the Columbia Valley and was brought up in 25% new French oak. It has plenty of darker fruits and earthy, herbal notes, medium body, terrific fruit, and a balanced, layered, charming style that's going to keep for 8-10 years. As normal, it's a smoking value. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Bittersweet chocolate, spicy dried herb, barrel spice and cherry aromas lead to elegant, juicy, well-balanced fruit flavors that carry on the finish. Grippy tannins back it up. Pair it with food to see it at its best. (SS) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
