Founded in 1983 by Jean and Baker Ferguson, L’;Ecole No. 41 was the third winery to open in Walla Walla Valley, Washington. Today it is owned and operated by their daughter and son-in-law, Megan and Martin Clubb. The estate fruit is grown at the acclaimed Seven Hills Vineyard which is coowned with Leonetti Cellar and Pepper Bridge Winery. The remaining fruit is sourced from highly regarded Columbia Valley vineyards such as Klipsun, Bacchus, Dionysus, Milbrandt, Portteus, Fair Acre Farms, Wahluke Slope Vineyards and Willard Farms. Many of these vineyards were planted in the 1970’s or early 1980’s and all of the Walla Walla Valley vineyards are certified sustainable and Salmon Safe. The Semillon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are all barrel aged. In the fall of 2003, L’Ecole completed the construction of a new concrete tilt barrel storage facility that accommodates the current inventory of over 2,000 French and American oak barrels. For 11 consecutive years, Wine & Spirits Magazine has named L’Ecole No. 41 as Winery of the Year, and was inducted in their Hall of Fame.

A step up, with a clean and classy feel, the 2012 Estate Luminesce is 61% Semillon and 39% Sauvignon Blanc (30% of the blend went through malolactic fermentation) that spent four months, on lees, in French oak. Loaded with notes of leafy herbs, melon ball, flowers and citrus blossom, it hits the palate with a medium-bodied, full and nicely textured profile that carries integrated acidity and a clean, dry finish. It’s a perfect meal-starter to enjoy over the coming year or three.

Tight, focused and distinctive, with onion-accented lemon curd and spice flavors. Finishes with flair. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. 1,260 cases made. –HS
