2007 Conner Lee Vineyard : Columbia Valley
We are very happy to be sourcing such wonderful fruit from this classic Washington State vineyard. Contributing to some of the state’s finest Bordeaux blends for many years, we are showing this vineyard on its own so you can experience the terroir. Located on Radar Hill near Othello, its cool location and significant elevation produce big dark berry flavors wrapped in a host of subtle contributing tastes like chocolate and coffee, rich and deep…they linger enjoyably.

3% Champoux Vineyard)
