2018 Lewis Cellars
We were blown away by the quality of the 2018 Lewis Cellars Race Car Red, so we went ahead and ordered what we could of the other 2018 Lewis Cellars Red Wines. None of these wines have been rated yet but don’t wait for the ratings to come out they will be gone by then.
2018 Lewis Cellars Ethan’s Syrah....$44.99
Bright-eyed, fresh and full of varietal character our 2018 Ethan’s Syrah serves up complex floral fruit aromas with black truffle, violets, pancetta and Turkish coffee. Vibrant and generous on the palate the wine keeps an even keel with baker’s chocolate and crushed rock at the tail.
2018 Lewis Cellars Alec’s Blend...$64.99
Like a stream-side thicket of blackberries basking in hot afternoon sun, our 2018 Alec’s Blend captures the essence of summer. 57% Syrah, 28% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Cabernet Franc this year’s blend boasts incredible color and layers of prodigious fruit with beguiling briar and vanilla spice. Hedonistic, youthful and seriously good with supple chocolatey tannins.
2018 Lewis Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon....$99.99
Our 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet is deliciously well-dressed with black currants, Godiva chocolate, kidskin gloves, and plenty of gravitas. Plush fruits and fresh character are deftly woven with mocha, cedar and tobacco spices all stitched with a supple hand and topped with tidy coat-tails.
