Winemaker Notes

#41 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Its elegant, old world structure and dense, dark fruit flavors show blackberry and plum with flavors of cassis, dark cherry, earth and savory herbs on a beautifully balanced finish.

This wine is a blend of five prestigious vineyard sites representing three unique soil types in the Walla Walla Valley. The diversity of soils exemplified in this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon results in added complexity, richness, and balance reflective of the vineyards themselves. Its old world structure, dense dark fruit flavors and elegant tannins exemplify the best of Walla Walla.

L'Ecole 41
L'Ecole No 41, a family owned vineyard, has been producing premium handcrafted varietal wines since 1983 in the historic Frenchtown School in Lowden, Washington. Having been founded by Jean and Baker Ferguson, the winery is now owned and operated by their daughter and son-in-law, Megan and Martin Clubb. Martin has been the general manager and winemaker since 1989.

In 1984, shortly after the first 1983 vintage was resting in barrel, Jean and Baker Ferguson, the founders, held a contest with all the relatives' children under grade six. The objective: draw a colorful drawing to be used as a wine label. Some of the children drew pictures of the school building, others drew bottles of wine with glasses, and at least one drew a picture of the cat. The prize at the time was $100 cash, plus royalties on posters sold (fortunately the state liquor board would not allow royalties on the wine).

The winner: 8 year old third grade cousin Ryan Campbell. Ryan's watercolor of the schoolhouse was drawn just about the time of Walla Walla's Hot Air Balloon Stampede, and he came up with the grape cluster balloon. All of the entries, including Ryan's original, hang in the tasting room for visitors to admire. Today, Ryan has just completed his Architecture Degree at the University of Idaho.
