Lewis Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Mason's 2018, Napa Valley, California

Former Indy car driver Randy Lewis, his wife, Debbie, and son, Dennis, are driven to create world class wines. This special bottling of Cabernet was named after Dennis’s 3rd son ‘Mason”. Fruit is sourced from Calistoga, St. Helena, Rutherford and Oak Knoll. The grapes are picked at full ripeness and maturity. Hand sorted and de-stemmed to small stainless steel tanks and open top fermenters, the wines are pressed off at dryness after 2-4 weeks on the skins. Aged primarily in new French oak for 19 months then bottled unfined and unfiltered. 2018 vintage – Sporting some Senior-year swagger, the 2018 Mason’s Cabernet is front-loaded with black plum, cherry, chocolate and cedary spice. Sourced from several of the same vineyards as the Napa Cabernet, this wine is boldly fruited yet youthful with tons of juicy character and a delicioiusly fresh finish.
