Winemaker's Notes

Now 10 years old Mason has joined the ranks of his double-digit brothers. It's not always easy being the youngest kid but this 2011 Mason's Cabernet has plenty of two-fisted punch. Lots of sweet and savory oak spices enter the ring first with a burst of ripe cherry-berry fruit that is laced with chocolate and a little licorice. Like Mason himself, the wine has a compact build with enough muscle and youthful tannin to ensure it keeps up with his brothers' bottlings.

Critical Acclaim

"There is little question but that the 2011 vintage is one in which careful selection will go a long way, but, as in every year, there will still be good Cabernets to be had, and this one from Lewis proves that point. It musters far more richness and sheer fruity muscle than the admittedly less-pricey 2011s that are debuted in this issue, and the winery's predilection for high ripeness and substance cannot go unnoticed. It is big, very big, but with its size comes a clear theme of currants, and it is dressed up with plenty of very sweet oak. It is unconcerned with finesse now, and it may never be, but it will never be faulted for being timid or at all underfilled. "

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
