  • 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.

    Dark as coal when first poured, this wine has a subtle, earthbound power that takes time in the glass to emerge. With its notes of plum skin and fig, and dark, muscular oak component, it’s a well-priced cabernet for ribs.

It's a persuasively characterful and complete wine from a challenging vintage.

    Blackberries and black olives with some crushed tile undertones. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. Fine and easy.

    Stephen Tanzer, November 2018

    Bright ruby-red. Inviting nose melds blackberry, cassis, licorice, chocolate, fresh herbs and tobacco leaf. Quite full in the mouth, showing lovely creamy depth, but framed by slightly edgy acidity. This concentrated wine offers impressive stuffing for its price but needs time to knit. Finishes with building, tongue-clenching tannins, excellent length and a late hint of nutty oak. Plenty of old-vines flavor intensity here. Serious juice--and 6,500 cases were made.
