It’s been called rapturous and you could call us thoroughly and hopelessly enraptured. Boysenberry, baker’s chocolate and black truffle make for a gastronomic bouquet. Your mouth will be watering before your first, juicy sip of this lifted, aromatic Merlot with a light touch of briar and native acidity. Fragrant and fresh from first to last, this is yet another great reason to fall for Lewis.

“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.
