NOTE: Less than 10 cases available. Order now! Why? Don�t miss this one-time-only chance to add a few extremely rare bottles of one of the top 5 rarest, and most collectible Merlot in Napa. PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: �This wine is a personal favorite and one I plan to add to the personal cellar!� Hal Oates, Porthos.com THE WINE INSIDERS �CLASSIC 95� RATING: This wine transcends any Merlot �norms� as it exhibits an enormous texture, fabulous concentration, a packed-and-stacked mid-palate, and an explosive intense, ripe, long finish, this stunning wine is extraordinarily complex and savory. That means this sensational wine is ready to rumble tonight (after decanting an hour) but also built to last if you�ve got more patience than the thirsty occupants of my home. Lewis� new Merlot boasts an incredibly array of flavors including espresso roast, mocha-infused chocolate, blackberry, cassis, cherry liqueur, and smoky oak. WINE SPECTATOR �OUTSTANDING 93� RATING: �Firm and tightly wound, but full of vim and vigor, with aromas of plum, mocha and dill that lead to rich yet dense, complex flavors of red currant, roasted anise and espresso. Finishes with ripe, muscular tannins. Best from 2010 through 2015. 225 cases made.�
