97+ Points | CWA
“This opulent and alluring new Cabernet delivers supreme gratification tonight while the luxurious texture and deftly integrated tannins (plus creamy new oak) bode well for enjoyment over the next decade. A voluptuous core of dark cherry and cassis on the front palate introduce hints of roasted espresso and allspice. We savored the lavish amounts of kirsch, mocha and blackberry flavors supported by supple, ultra fine-grained tannins. The statuesque finish includes notes of exuberant toasted oak and vanilla. A HUGE crowd pleaser ready to deliver. Collectors may enjoy this thoroughbred now (after decanting) for a 97 point experience, evolving into 98 points and beyond through 2029.” - California Wine Advisors

I’ve been a big fan of Lewis wines for years and have personally collected most vintages. I call the Reserve Cabernet one of my ‘go-to’ wines that I grab in my cellar when entertaining. I was thrilled to see Lewis receive “Wine of the Year” recognition by the Wine Spectator magazine recently and heartily congratulate their entire family. - Hal Oates | Porthos President & Founder
