L'Ecole No. 41 Recess Red 2007

Friday, May 29, 2009

L’Ecole No. 41’s Recess Red is the winery’s red table wine. This wine is typically composed of barrels that didn’t make it in to L’Ecole’s higher end wines as well as the hard press fractions from their vineyard lots. Some years I have enjoyed this wine. This year I didn't think it quite came together.

NB: The 2006 vintage of this wine was our inaugural virtual tasting wine last August.







L’Ecole No. 41 Recess Red 2007

Chocolate mixes with herbs, light pepper, and spice on the nose. Nicely textured but not a lot of movement along the palate. Solid and even but overall unremarkable. 50% Merlot; 25% Syrah; 16% Cabernet; 6% Petit Verdot; 3% Cab Franc. 14.1% alcohol.

Sampled at 66 degrees.
