Lewis Cellars Alec's Blend Red 2009
Other Red Blends from Napa Valley, California
With Alec already starting high school it's feeling like life in the fast lane. Top Gear is actually his favorite TV show and 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.
Wine Spectator - "An amazing wine made in a rich, generous style, with loads of ripe berry flavors, including wild berry, blueberry, raspberry and plum. Full-bodied, it's fleshy and easy-drinking already, yet has the depth and concentration for cellaring. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022. "

Notable FactsWithin the Napa Valley lie smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two is St.-Helena and finally, just grated an AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap and Mount Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
