Lewis Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

In keeping with family tradition, this bottling celebrates the birth of Dennis' third son, Mason, in January 2003. Mason's wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from a single vineyard on a sunny ridge high on Mt. Veeder, farmed by Napa Valley legend, David Abreu. The wine is plush and spicy with ripe, forward fruit and soft, round tannins, brimming with wild berries, toasty oak and shadings of briar and tobacco. 800 cases produced.

Lewis Cellars:
In 1992, Debbie and Randy Lewis established a small family winery with their son Dennis. Total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. We are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales and distribution, and we thrive on this challenge and the relationships we cultivate in the process. It is our continuing goal to create world class wines.

This is a previous selection of the Gold Medal Wine Club- Platinum Series. A rare exception for an exceptional wine. Normally, part of the Platinum Series selection criteria requires scores in the 90s and/or multiple top honors in the prestigious wine industry competitions. Lewis Cellars’small production of esteemed wines is routinely and entirely allocated prior to general release. So, if you want it, you buy it, and wait patiently for the avalanche of accolades to follow. The Wine Spectator commented recently about Lewis Cellars’ consistent track record of above 90-point ratings— “It’s a record of excellence that few California wineries can rival. [They are] one of the superstar labels of Napa Valley.” Winery tasting notes on their newly released 2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon tell the story “. . . outstanding deep rich color, aromas of cocoa, currants and sweet oak spice that are complex, rich and focused. A multi layered broad round mouth-feel of generous plum, currant and blackberry fruit encompassed by toasty oak tantalize the taste buds. The wine’s distinct chocolate flavors become clear and apparent as the finish builds on the palate. Soft, supple and integrated tannins. You can drink this wine now or cellar up to 2010 and beyond.”
