2012 L'Ecole No 41 Ferguson Vineyard
Cépage: Cabernet Sauvignon (61%); Merlot (27%); Cabernet Franc (6%); Malbec (6%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 95 (RP)
" 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."
