L'Ecole No. 41 Walla Walla Valley Ferguson Vineyard Red 2012

Robert Parker's WIne Advocate 95pts:

My favorite in the lineup was the spectacular 2012 Ferguson Reserve, a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 6% Malbec in 2012, and comes all from basalt soils in the southern part of the appellation. Aged 22 months in 50% new French oak, it offers layers of cassis, currants, lead pencil shavings, toasted bread and spice that flow to a full-bodied, multi-dimensional and concentrated 2012 that has stunning purity of fruit. Like the other two single-vineyard releases, this shows more and more structure with time in the glass, so short-term cellaring is advised. It’s another terrific wine from this team that will have 20-25 years of longevity.

Vinous, November 93+pts:

Bright ruby-red. Captivating perfumed lift to the aromas of cassis, blackberry and violet, with hints of blood and iron adding another dimension. Wonderfully brisk, fine-grained and supple, offering superb energy to its deep core of black and blue fruits and flowers. Rich and tactile but quite dry. Finishes with silky, refined tannins--especially for young vines--and terrific length. Clearly another elite Washington vineyard in the making
