"This merlot is fragrant and very lively, the herbal freshness, crisp tannins and bright acidity making it very food friendly. Good length, too. Drink or hold."
Wine Tasting Notes
Layered with enticing aromas of plum and notes of violet, this full bodied Merlot shows a robust core of black cherry, blackberry, and cola on a seamless finish of fine-grained yet firm tannin.

"L'Ecole N° 41 is a second generation, family-owned artisan winery located in the historic Frenchtown School depicted on our label. Founded in 1983, we are the third oldest winery in the Walla Walla Valley. We have become one of the most prominent and visible Walla Walla Valley wineries with national and international distribution.
As a traditional brick and mortar winery, we are engaged in growing and making 100% of our wines. Our focus is on terroir-driven, distinctive, and expressive wines. This is achieved by our over thirty years of winemaking experience combined with dedicated, long-term relationships with some of the oldest and most proven vineyards in the Walla Walla and Columbia Valleys.
Today we are at the forefront of sustainable farming in the Walla Walla Valley, notably with our Estate Ferguson and Estate Seven Hills vineyards. All of our Walla Walla Valley wines are made from grapes sourced from vineyards which are certified sustainable and Salmon Safe.
L'Ecole has garnered national and international accolades over the years for producing superior quality wines. One of which we are most proud, being honored twelve consecutive years by Wine & Spirits Magazine as Winery of the Year, and becoming the second Washington winery inducted into its prestigious Hall of Fame."
