L'Ecole 41 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

"L'ecole hits the mark with its Walla Walla Cab. It may not be vineyard designated, but who cares whn it's so ripe, rich and complex? Tightly reined in around the edge, it focuses the coffee-scented blackberry currant, cherry and chocolate flavors into a bright beam that lasts and lasts on the generous, spicy finish. Drink now through 2010."
