Still making wines just like he used to drive, ex-racer Randy Lewis loads this Cab with dense aromas of cocoa, oak spice, and dark fruits. Melted berry character combines with firm tannin and a lavish finish. Lewis Cellars is known for bold, muscular Cabs and this latest release keeps the pedal down.
“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.
The deep purple-hued 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rocking fruit bomb of a wine that boasts loads of cassis and jammy berry fruits, notes of graphite, scorched earth, and tobacco, full-bodied richness, and a great finish. Drink this sexy, pleasure-bent beauty over the coming 10-12 years.
Ripe black fruit, dried coconut, walnut and bark on the nose. Full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Ripe and dense with a spirited finish. Slightly old school but attractive and intense. Try after 2023.
Quite ripe, with macerated blackberry, dark plum and fig fruit flavors that meld nicely with black licorice and sweet tobacco notes through the toasty finish. Has good energy to balance the overt style. Drink now through 2030.
