  • About this winery

    A family-owned business, L'Ecole Nº 41 was founded by Jean and Baker Ferguson. Today, the winery is owned and operated by their daughter and son-in-law, Megan and Martin Clubb. Built in 1915, the schoolhouse is located in historic Frenchtown, a small community just west of Walla Walla, Washington.

    This wine is 100% Cabernet, coming from Seven Hills, Loess, Summit View, Yellow Jacket, Stone Valley, Ferguson and Pepper Bridge vineyards. Locked-up aromas of barrel spice, toast, herb, vanilla and dark fruit give way to rich but well balanced black-fruit flavors. Lightly grainy tannins offer sufficient support.

    Stephen Tanzer, October 2017

    (aged entirely in barriques, 25% new and less than 10% American; the vines that produce this blend average about 28 years of age, according to Marty Clubb): Moderately saturated bright medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis, dark chocolate, espresso and oak spices are lifted by a violet topnote. Dense, layered, warm-year Cabernet with fruit-dominated flavors of blackberry, cassis, plum and coffee. The tannins arrive late but are quite chewy and serious. This is L'Ecole No. 41's largest-production wine and a big success in 2014.
