47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Malbec

"Expressive and rather burly, with floral blackberry, orange peel and green tea flavors that finish with brooding tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2021 through 2026. 520 cases made. -TF " (WS)

"The violets, rose petals and dark berries are really cool here. Medium to full body and tight and finely polished tannins. Wonderful length and focus. Extremely poised and solid. Blend of 47% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 8% malbec. Drink now or hold." (JS)

"The 2015 Conflict Conner Lee Vineyard (47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Malbec) offers a more high-toned style to go with notes of blue fruits, violets, spice, and cedar. It's full-bodied, silky and elegant on the palate, with fine tannin and well-integrated acidity, and I suspect it will age gracefully." (JD)

"Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 47% of this wine, with the balance 45% Merlot and 8% Malbec. Its nuanced cherry, dark coffee, herb, vanilla and spice aromas are followed by palate-coating fruit and barrel flavors that feel seamless. Coffee notes linger on the finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Our classical blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon displays the terroir of Conner Lee Vineyard in gorgeous form. Our outstanding 1992 Merlot block we blend with our old block 1987 Cabernet in this reserve selection. Warm vintages for Conner Lee Vineyard are our favorites, showing off big ripe flavors balanced by the cool site’s fresh acidity. Expect this wine to last for ten to twenty years and show its best from one year after release.
