2017 L'Ecole No. 41 "Ferguson Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $60)

SKU #1541451 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark What a fantastic wine with currant, blackberry and pumice character. It also has a hot-stone undertone. It’s full-bodied with chewy yet broad tannins that flow through the wine. Complex and juicy. Very minerally with blood-orange character. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I loved the 2017 Ferguson Estate Ferguson Vineyard. This beauty is complex and nuanced, with stunning notes of crème de cassis, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and crushed rocks. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby, aromas of dark berries, licorice, peppery herbs, tobacco leaf, menthol and minerals. Plush, fine-grained and concentrated, showing a restrained sweetness and a strong spicy quality to its piquant pomegranate and cranberry flavors, plus a subtle suggestion of white fruits. Conveys a strong impression of terroir character in its mineral firmness and brisk wind-driven acidity. Really showcases this fascinating site's long growing season in its combination of flavor complexity, intensity, gripping acidity and density without weight. Finishes with very refined tannins, resounding length and a touch of austerity. No easy sweetness here but already long on personality. (ST) 94+ Inner quote mark (12/2020)

I have long been a fan of L'Ecole's wines, they offer the very best of Washington State with a clear stylistic nod toward Bordeaux. The 2017 Ferguson has a wonderful Graves like nose of smoky dark fruits, blackberry, salted plum, winter spice, espresso. On the palate there's a lovely balance of soft, lush, dark fruits and fine but grippy tannin giving ample shape. With more air complex cigar box tones, embers, and hot stone come forth. The wine finishes very pure and fresh, powerful but poised. A very complete package, absolutely delicious as a young wine, but plenty of potential for the cellar as well. Spectacular value for money.
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2035
