L’Ecole No 41 2013 Syrah, Columbia Valley, $25

By on May 11, 2016

lecole syrahL’Ecole No. 41, the Walla Walla Valley’s famous schoolhouse winery, had compiled a consistent record of A-list Syrah over decades. Now it can add its 2013 Columbia Valley version to that honor roll. Fresh game, plum, blueberry and blackberry aromas lead off, followed by more of the same fruit flavors, then well-managed blueberry tannins and graphite at the close. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
