2020 Lewis 'Reserve' Chardonnay Napa Valley

$79.95

You can always count on Randy Lewis to deliver a Chardonnay with drive. This beauty pulls you through the curves like it’s on rails, from the opening aromas of white flower and green pear to the rich stone-fruit flavors and crushed-stone minerality. The ‘Reserve’ is definitely going the distance.

“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.

Rich and toasty, with spicy accents of nutmeg and cumin rounding out a creamy core of lemon curd, vanilla paste, salted butter and mango. Packs a fresh thread of acidity that keeps the flavors in focus. Drink now. 400 cases made. (MW)
