Lewis Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2015

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

A Gold Medal Wine Club selection. 96 Points, Connoisseurs’ Guide – “As deep and defined and impressively structured as any wine in this issue, Lewis adds to its recent string of show-stopping Chardonnay successes with a Cabernet that stands with the best. A big, highly extracted wine whose concentration and sheer sense of scale are matched by few, it shows layer upon layer of cassis, creamy oak, cola, chocolate, coffee and loamy soil qualities that outdistance its ample young tannins and handily buffer its scant edge of heat. Downright enthralling, yet only a shadow of what it is bound to become, it deserves seeking out.” 93 Points, Wine Spectator – “Firm, rich and chewy, this is tight, concentrated and focused, with a layered, complex mix of loamy currant, cedary oak, sage and wild berry, gaining depth and length on the finish, where the flavors are deep and persistent.”

This Cabernet Sauvignon has light fruit flavors and a deep tannins. It' s not as oaky and I enjoyed it much more than the Lewis Napa Valley Cab 2005

A seductively complex and compelling style, with rich fruit, jazzy oak and a mix of currant, black cherry, blackberry and mocha-laced oak.

Lewis Cellars, a family owned and operated winery that began in 1992, is known for creating memorable wine. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and complex, with alluring notes of mocha, hazelnut, and cassis. The finish is packed with sweet oak spice. Structured and powerful.
