The fruit from Conner Lee Vineyard has been so special the last few years that we have decided to show this wine on its own. This is the first 100% Merlot bottling from Nota Bene Cellars and is a tribute to the success of this vineyard. Located on Radar Hill near Othello, its cool location and significant elevation produce big dark berry flavors wrapped in a host of subtle contributing aromas. Rose petals and cranberries are prevalent.
