For decades, consumers in the know have been looking to Walla Walla for Cabernet and Bordeaux blends that can stand tall next to the best that California had to offer, yet a new focus on vintage and terroir has propelled the region forward. p roperties like L'Ecole, which have defined the region over the past three decades, are perfectly poised to deliver the best that Washington has to offer. Now under the leadership of the second generation of family winemakers, Marty Clubb of L'Ecole is making some of the most distinctive examples of terroir-driven wines that you can find in Walla Walla Valley. It's their respect for the vine growing and winemaking process, start to finish, that defines their style. In the Ferguson vineyard, L'Ecole takes advantage of its basalt soils and a unique microclimate to deliver a wine of unmatched complexity and depth. Being the sole producer from this estate, they have yet again pioneered a location in Washington state that is sure to receive a lot of attention in vintages to come. ✦ L' e cole No. 41 f erguson v ineyard Walla Walla 2013 JD 94 » $69 "Another head-turner...
