Winemaker Notes

With an elegant, old world structure, this sophisticated Cabernet shows pretty aromas of dark fruit, earth, and baking spices. A robust core of blackberry and plum with notes of current and sweet tobacco are framed with polished tannins on a rich, harmonious finish.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
L'Ecole's Walla Walla Cabernet has a soft-focus silkiness, an almost gauzy character. Behind that film is a wine tasting of wild berries, Bing cherries and fresh herbs, with light streaks of coffee and moist earth. Give this one plenty of decanting and the scrim lifts away and reveals a firm, beautifully balanced and nuanced wine.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Showing more depth, richness and structure, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley is a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a number of vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley. Black cherry, black currant, tobacco, earth, asphalt and crushed stone-like aromas all emerge from the glass, and on the palate, it has a dense, chewy mouthfeel and ample tannin. In need of 2-3 years of bottle age, it will drink nicely for upwards of 10-15 years. Drink 2015-2025.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Dense, richly textured and focused, layering the ripe cherry and spice flavors into a polished package that extends pleasantly onto the smooth finish.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Classic Walla Walla scents of cedar frond and Mexican chocolate give way to an inky, concentrated set of fruit flavors—black plum bordering on cassis. The toasted espresso feel to the tannins suggests a pairing with pepper-crusted lamb.

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
