Lewis pulls out all the stops for Ethan’s Syrah, a go-for-broke effort that’s loaded with blackberry, pancetta, and chocolate as it cruises to a crushed rock finale. Beautifully textured, dense and chewy, this has the bones for an extended evolution, but there’s no reason to wait on green-lighting gratification.

“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.

Slightly cooler climate notes of blackberries, peppery herbs, spring flowers, and smoked game emerge from the 2018 Syrah Ethan's, another beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, balanced wine from Lewis Cellars that's well worth seeking out. This beauty should evolve for 8-10 years, although there's no need to delay gratification either.
