Winemaker's Notes:

Seductive, sleek and serious best describe our 2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. 96% Cabernet and 4% Cabernet Franc, this opulent wine is crafted from Pritchard Hill, Calistoga, Rutherford and Oak Knoll hillside vineyards. Cedary sweet oak spice, black fruit and cocoa aromas are potent. On entry the wine is deeply fruited, plush and round with kirsch, café mocha and blackberry flavors supporting very supple, fine-grained tannins and delivering great texture and length.
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.
