“This spectacular new Reserve bottling is a brilliant example of why connoisseurs adore Napa’s 2018 vintage. In two words, it’s all about Power and Persistence! The silky smooth texture and plush tannins (plus creamy new oak) introduce a powerful core of dark cherry, cassis and pipe tobacco on the front palate with hints of roasted espresso beans. The ultra-rich finish features luxurious notes of creamy vanilla and a hint of graham cracker. Another tremendous crowd pleaser given the balance of tannins and persistent bold fruit flavors throughout! Collectors may enjoy this thrill ride now (after decanting) and anytime over the next decade. Bottomline: we’ve sampled the last 10 releases of Lewis Reserve and this is the most seriously tasty new release in memory!” - California Wine Advisors

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 their 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 Founder and President
