Like a roller coaster cresting a hill, this single-vineyard thrill ride builds excitement with every sip. Dense and complex, flavors of tropical fruits, lemon custard and orange marmalade demand your full attention. This really was a standout Chardonnay for us in the Lewis lineup this year!

“Lewis' style is a supersized, pedal-to-the-metal, open-throttle expression of flavor. Those characteristics run throughout the winery's lineup…Few wineries perform as consistently as Lewis." - Wine Spectator Randy Lewis spent a 23-year career pushing personal and mechanical limits as a race car driver, beginning as a Formula 3 driver in Europe. That’s where he fell in love with fine wine. He founded Lewis Cellars in 1992, and today he and his winemaker Josh Widaman, formerly of Pahlmeyer, are making the best wines in the history of the estate. In short, these are some of the most popular Napa Valley wines Bounty Hunter offers. They’re unrestrained, voluptuous wines that consistently score in the mid-to-high 90s. The feedback we get from you is enthusiastic across the board.
