A delicious new rose release from one of our favorite Napa Valley winieries. Tiny production.
Jerry Garcia's "Scarlet Begonias" is the muse behind our 2016 Vin Gris - another vintage we're grateful for.

Lush and round yet succulent and refreshing this is rosé you 'might as well try, might as well try.' 125 cases produced

Beauty, brains and depth of character, this summer stunner has it all. Loads of ripe on-the-tree mango fruit, guava and nectarine are laced with tropical spices and complex minerality. Vibrant fresh fruit flavors are creamy textured and tantalizing while the wine holds your gaze with a steady beam of acid. Perfectly proportioned and seamlessly fitted, the Lewis 2016 Sauvignon Blanc finishes with notes of vanilla, lime, exotic mineral spice, and endless intrigue.

Exclusive new Napa Valley Chardonnay release from one of Napa Valley's finest producers, Lewis Cellars. One of our favorite all time Napa Chardonnays.
92 Points Wine Spectator: "Builds intensity and nuance from a firm core, with the light spicy oak joining hands with rich fig, melon and peach notes. This is young and unevolved, so short-term cellaring will be a plus. Drink now through 2020."
The bountiful yields of 2015 had tons of character too, as seen in the superb Napa Valley Chardonnay. Creamy pear, lime and caramel apple fruit basks in brioche, clove and sweet mineral spices. Loads of tree-ripened fruit form a dense, silky core rooted in natural acidity that gives the wine balance and sound structure. Flecks of gun metal, flint and whetstone add complexity to the long leesy finish.

Exclusive new release from one of Napa Valley's finest producers. The Lewis Cellars 2014 Alec's Blend is a delicious blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Guaranteed to stain your teeth purple. Small-production.
94 Points Brix26: "A boundary-pushing blend of Syrah 60%, Merlot 34% and Cabernet 6%. Has deliciously explosive aromas of ripe blackberry and huckleberry fruits, kirsch-like cherry cola, spicy oak, supple tannin and a trace of s'mores. Supple tannins and superb balance lend structure to this full-bodied red with a long, lingering finish. Enjoy with grilled meats or mushroom risotto."
92 Points Wine Spectator: "Rich, focused and powerfully structured, with black cherry and mocha aromas complementing layered flavors of dark plum, mineral and licorice that linger toward firm tannins. Hands off for now. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2019 through 2026."

92 Points Wine Spectator: "Smooth-textured, with plush honeydew, honeysuckle, pear and apricot notes, ending with touches of lemon, green apple and ginger. Long and clean. Drink now. 500 cases made."
Winery Tasting Notes: "2014 makes it three excellent vintages in a row for our Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay, sourced from a trio of clones at this Dutton Ranch vineyard. The wine is all succulent, ripe citrus with toasty tangerine, orange zest and lemon-lime. Toasty gun-barrel oak and vanilla, together with tropical fruit skin and spice completes the package. Buttressed by a framework of native acidity the wine is gauzy in weight and texture, staying up in the palate before finishing with focus and clarity. 500 cases produced."

From former race car driver Randy Lewis' Napa Valley vineyards, this is the super-charged version of the winery's highly-regarded Cabernets.
Think of Cuvee L as a supercharged rendition of our Reserve Cabernet, with a swimsuit model at the wheel. Spectacularly ripe fruit laced in sexy clove and oak spices, this wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and total seduction. Youthful and forward with juicy blackberry, silk-skinned plum and rich, malt chocolate, ample tannins bring maturity, depth and heightened experience to the wine. Only 150 cases produced.
