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.

Bright red-biased color that does not let much light through. Lots of berry aromas with a hit, also, of stone fruit. Berry fruit is all over the wine on introduction to the tongue, but, then, there is a mineral or dusty hit that immediately adds complexity. Next I’m getting the tannins and a hit of mint. This is one wine were I truly see different layers of flavors piling on. It's drinkable, make that enjoyable, now, but anybody who has this does not need to rush now. I think it can age for many more years.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series 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) and was recently awarded an outstanding 95 Points from Wine Spectator. 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.

Offers an amazing mix of flavors, extending from plum and blueberry to loamy earth, dried herb, cedar and tobacco. At points this is supple, but eventually firms on the finish, ending with a hot-brick edge to the tannins. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvig

An amazing wine made in a rich, generous style, with loads of ripe berry flavors, including wild berry, blueberry, raspberry and plum. Full-bodied, its fleshy and easy-drinking already, yet has the depth and concentration for cellaring. Syrah, Merlo... Wine Spectator.

This new blend of 80% Syrah, 17% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon packs plenty of power and youthful pleasure. Sappy black cherry and blueberry fruits are injected with clove and vanilla oak spice plus traces of truffle and sandalwood. Lively off the line, the palate performs with all the complex componentry and smooth power of a 4-valve, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine. 1,000 cases produced.
