1997 Lewis Cuvee L Cabernet - 97 pts

Lewis Cellars is a winery in California's famous Napa Valley, producing around 9000 cases of wine a year. Its wines, made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, have attracted a small but devoted following for the winery, and consistently high scores from wine critics.

Lewis Cellars was founded in 1992 by by Randy and Debbie Lewis. Randy Lewis fell in love with wine during his time as a race car driver in Europe, and after crashing into a wall during a qualifying trial at the Indianapolis 500 in 1991, decided to pursue winemaking full time. He founded Oakville Ranch Vineyards with Bob Miner, co-founder of Oracle and a former sponsor. However, when Miner was diagnosed with cancer in 1994, he suggested Lewis create his own winery. Lewis's son Dennis joined the team in 1999.
