Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Bold, ripe, rich and focused, with deeply concentrated wild berry, blackberry and blueberry flavors, presented in a full-bodied, plush and complex manner, ending with ripe, mouthcoating tannins and a pretty dash of toasty oak.

About This Producer


In 1992, Debbie and Randy Lewis established a small family winery with their son Dennis. Total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. They source the finest fruit available from Oakville, Rutherford and Pritchard Hill for red varietals, and the Carneros and Russian River Valley appellations for Chardonnay.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
