L’Ecole No 41-Cabernet Sauvignon-Walla Walla Valley-Washington State-2007-$22.50-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark amber in color.  A smooth, medium to full bodied Cab, with blackberry, black cherry, herbs and licorice, drinking really well now, an elegant wine,  would of rated higher if it had more tannins to show aging potential.                    RP-91               WS-92                CR-90                Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
