Bookwalter Conflict Red Blend 2016
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 & 1988 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. Suave and complex with classical aromatics of currants and dark berries married to new French oak and savory earthiness. Supported by 2% Malbec bring spice and pepper notes with aromatic brightness. Cabernet Sauvignon’s tannic intensity vies with the voluptuous Merlot for attention in this dynamic wine.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon , 48% Merlot, 2% Malbec

Jeb DunnuckDeep purple/ruby-colored, it's a full-bodied, ripe, polished beauty that has loads of black fruits, spring flowers, underbrush, and mint-laced aromas and flavors. It's a beautiful, elegant, seamless wine from this estate.
