Not Suitable for Children
Only a person with the hardest of hearts couldn't appreciate the whimsy of this Walla Walla, Washington, brand. I didn't realize it until I went to the L'Ecole No. 41 website later that day, but this red is a mix of several different wines: 42% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah, 11% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère. How's that for an intriguing table wine?
Gentlemen reading this blog: I don't mean to sound condescending, but I think this wine is a sure bet if you're having a lady over for dinner. The flavor is rich without being overpowering, and the label is funny and sweet enough that she'll see you for the good-hearted suitor you most certainly are.
