Year after year, this Napa Valley Chardonnay comes in as one of our absolute favorites. Fried food just cries out for a creamy white, and we love this wine's evocative aromas of yellow delicious, spice caramel, and sumptuous creme brulee.
“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.
All three of the Chardonnays are great, and the 2019 Chardonnay Napa Valley is well worth seeking out. Its medium gold hue is followed by a great, classic nose of ripe white peach, caramelized citrus, white flowers, and a touch of rocky, mineral-like nuances. It's actually made in a fresher, more elegant style than the richer Sonoma County release yet brings plenty of richness and texture.
