“This oh-so sumptuous new 2017 Reserve bottling offers obsession-inducing thrills for fans of Napa’s most hedonistic Cabernet. The velvety smooth texture and plush tannins (plus creamy new oak) bode well for enjoyment tonight and anytime over the next decade. A voluptuous core of dark cherry and cassis on the front palate introduce hints of roasted espresso and walnuts. Bold notes of mocha and blackberry flavors lead to a majestic finish featuring 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 (2/20)

Porthos Perspective: “I’ve been a big fan of Lewis wines for years and have personally collected most vintages. I call the Reserve Cabernet and Barcaglia Chardonnay 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
