23. L’Ecole No 41 2013 Sèmillon, Columbia Valley, $15

l'ecole-no-41-semillon-2012-bottleL’Ecole No. 41 in the Walla Walla Valley town of Lowden, Wash., has long championed this underappreciated white Bordeaux variety. This is another great example, with aromas of fresh-cut apple, lemon-lime, followed by a smooth entry with hints of apricot and stone fruit. The beautifully balanced acidity leads to a bright, peachy finish, and it earned a gold medal last fall at the 2014 Great Northwest Invitational.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 4,800 cases

Alcohol: 14.5%
