Lewis Cellars Merlot Sonoma County 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

From low-yielding Pritchard Hill and Calistoga blocks, our 2005 Merlot is an 11 on a seduction scale of 10. Intense blueberry, cocoa and cedar-infused oak aromas alone are enough to quicken your pulse. In your mouth, the wine is saturated with redolent, ripe-on-the-vine fruit with fine, fleshy texture. Satisfyingly rich and delicious with stiff yet silky tannins, prepare yourself for some serious pleasure. 500 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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
