91points:Nota Bene 2008 Conner Lee Vineyard Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

Aged for 22 months in French oak—one third new—this is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. Nota Bene's wines are not shy about high alcohol, but here the fruit stands up well to the oak treatment and shows no sign of over-ripeness. A good spine supports a rich wine with black fruits, balanced acids, and a big streak of espresso. Paul Gregutt
