Our first single-vineyard blend from this iconic vineyard has
yielded a wine of great fruit concentration followed by velvety,
silky tannins. Flavors of cola, black olive, spice, plum, and
black cherries dominate the nose as well as the palate. A wine
of exceptional finesse and character that truly represents this
seasoned, cool site. Recommended cellaring 6–12 years.
66% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc & 1% Petit Verdot
"This is a revelation. The complex and site-specific aromas suggest wild herb, lavender, lemon verbena and black olive. The tannins are supple and ripe, with no green edge at all. The fruit combines mineral-soaked black cherry, sweet raspberry compote, and deep cassis. A marvelous wine, dense, detailed and seductive."
"The 2007 Conflict Conner Lee Vineyard consists of 66% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Medium purple in color, it sports an aromatic array of balsam wood, spice box, violets, incense, black currant, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of concentration, this tasty effort will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and has a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2027.
