Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Syrah Napa Valley is the muscle car, the big-block powered bottle from our Rhone wine line-up. Mountain vines in low-vigor volcanic soils at 1,500 feet yield high-octane juice that's practically jet-black and packed with cedary oak spice and smoky dark fruit. Brambly, lifted and dense, the wine is also vibrant and fresh, framed with chewy, long-throw tannins that travel far down the road.
My Notes:

About Lewis Cellars:

Former Indy Car driver Randy Lewis and his wife Debbie started Lewis Cellars in 1992. They are truly "Driven... to create world-class wines." Along with their son, Dennis, they are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales and distribution. They thrive on the challenges and the relationships cultivated in the process. It is their continuing goal to greate small lots of exciting and unique Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah.
