2007 Conner Lee Merlot : Columbia Valley
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.
