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 Gold Medal Wine Club selection. A special wine that’s near impossible to get your hands on is the Lewis Cellars 2006 Alec’s Blend, a proprietary red blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine’s outstanding legacy of 91+ Point Scores since 1999 (earning as high as 96 Points in 2002!), has created an incredibly high demand for Alec’s Blend, which continues to sell out at the winery within just a few short months upon each release. The 2006 blend is just a little more grown up this vintage, like Alec himself (now 11 years old). An homage to pleasure-seeking, joyful boyishness, this blend is like running through a briar patch: the ripe blackberry fruit is spiked with sweet vanilla oak spices, cola and a hint of toffee and chocolate. Round on the palate with plush, supple tannins, this wine’s rich, playful flavors are sure to bring out your inner child. Try pairing the Lewis Cellars 2006 Alec’s Blend with grilled lamb kabobs, smoked pork chops, and pasta carbonara. 70% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy now until 2015.

The 2006 blend is just a little more grown up this vintage, like Alec himself (now 11 years old) and was recently awarded an outstanding 95 Points from Wine Spectator.
