2013 L’Ecole No.41 Semillon


Finally we are getting some warm spring days.  The winter was like a temperature roller coaster.  October was cold, November warm, December cold, January warm, February cold.  Lets hope this cycle breaks in April through the summer and fall.  We had a day that reached the mid 60’s and it felt great.  Chris was in the mood for fish tacos so it was my job to pair a white wine.  She usually makes the sauce a little spicy so I had to consider that too.  The right choice for the meal was the 2013 L’Ecole No.41 Semillon.


Pale color depth with an amber hue.


Moderate young-fruity aromas of pear, apple and other citrus fruits.

Dry, medium-bodied with balanced acidity.  Crisp mid-palate flavors with a lingering soft finish.

abv: 14.5%

How much: $14.00 Great price for the wine.  A real deal.

Region/Appellation:  Columbia Valley Washington State.

Blend: 87% Semillon and 13% Sauvignon Blanc.

I rated the 2013 L’Ecole No.41 Semillon three glasses.  The Semillon white wine was a perfect match for our fish tacos.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine.  Expand your palate and keep trying.
