Winemaker's Notes

2005 Lewis Cellars Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a broad-shouldered blend of 93% Cabernet and 7% Cabernet Franc, crafted from Pritchard Hill, Calistoga, Rutherford and Oak Knoll hillside vineyards. The nose is saturated with blackberry and sweet oak spice, tinged with toffee and chocolate. On entry the wine is brooding, tightly packed with fleshy fruit and sinewy texture that gathers richness and length on the palate with satisfying, fine-grained tannins. 2,200 cases produced. Firm, rich and chewy, this is tight, concentrated and focused, with a layered, complex mix of loamy currant, read more...cedary oak, sage and wild berry, gaining depth and length on the finish, where the flavors are deep and persistent. Best from 2009 through 2015.J.L. Vol. 4, No. 16 | April 23, 2008 . This is a California wine. (hide)
