Lewis Cuvee L Red Wine 2018, Napa Valley, California

“From the outstanding 2018 vintage our Cuvee L is a league champion wine with serious World Series potential. The line-up card includes cascading black fruit, Mission fig and Turkish arabica coffee laced with cedary, oak-infused spices. The wine is lifted and expansive, leaving the yard with velocity and polish.” – winery. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Red varietals 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. Bordeaux varietals are aged primarily in new French oak for 19 months then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Lewis Cellars produces big, spicy, concentrated wines that are balanced yet full of black fruit and mature, mouth-coating tannins.
