K&L Notes

In terms of dream careers, race car driver and winemaker are often at the top of the list—though not usually held by the same individual. Yet former Indy car driver Randy Lewis has managed to make a living out of both passions, settling in the Napa Valley, where he’s been at the wheel of his family winery since 1992. Just in time for summer, Lewis Cellars Chardonnays are expertly crafted by winemaker Josh Widaman (formerly of Pahlmeyer) to drive fans to this small family winery. Producer notes: "2014 makes it three excellent vintages in a row for our Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay, sourced from a trio of clones at this Dutton Ranch vineyard. The wine is all succulent, ripe citrus with toasty tangerine, orange zest and lemon-lime. Toasty gun-barrel oak and vanilla, together with tropical fruit skin and spice completes the package. Buttressed by a framework of native acidity the wine is gauzy in weight and texture, staying up in the palate before finishing with focus and clarity. 500 cases produced."

The Sonoma counterpart to Lewis Cellars' Reserve Chardonnay, the “Barcaglia Lane” Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sourced from a trio of clones at Dutton Ranch and shows more lemon and tropical notes with a smooth, richly textured finish—almost reminiscent of creamy caramel—plus the expected vanilla and oak. This is a full-throttle California white, clocking in at 14.9% abv, but with an elegance and sophistication that would get anyone’s motor running—I’m fully aware that so many puns could crash and burn, but with wine this delicious from the champion 2014 vintage, I just can’t stop. Neither does the long finish.
