Lewis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Fragrant notes of black cherry and currants

Full bodied and dense on the palate

Long, rich, and densely packed finish with dark chocolate and plum accented by spice


There's intensity and depth to this Cabernet that showcases classic Napa Valley character. It's big and bold yet also dense and refined.

I've sampled many of the recent vintages of this wine, and it's remarkably good every year. Priced at $80 or so, it's not cheap but worth the splurge. Grill a porterhouse, breath this wine, and you'll have a dinner to remember. Raise a glass!
