2016 Edward Lewis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $75)

SKU #1433808 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark All three of these wines from Edward Snider (Lewis is Edward’s middle name) are brilliant. The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, brought up all in new oak) offers a gorgeously rich, textured, yet also weighty style as well as impressive Cabernet fruit, tobacco, and earthy aromas and flavors. It has a layered, balanced texture, fine tannins, and a great, great finish, and as Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a smoking value. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

Before founding Edward Lewis Cellars in 2016, Ed Snider founded Beau Vigne in 2002, a hidden gem in the Atlas Peak AVA, which is well known for its top-scoring Cabernet Sauvignons. Although Beau Vigne has flown somewhat under the radar their history runs deep in Napa Valley. Ed's grandfather arrived in Napa Valley in 1913 after having trained as a winemaker in Italy. To his credit, Ed, along with winemaker Kirk Venge have produced a string of brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon's including their epic 100 point (Robert Parker) 2013 Reserve.

Attention lovers and collectors of bold Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! This might just be the Cabernet deal-of-the-year...so far. Edward Lewis is the micro-boutique winery created by Ed "Lewis" Snider of Beau Vigne. Much like the beloved wines from Beau Vigne, this is bold, plush, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon crafted by famed winemaker Kirk Venge. It's replete with a bowl full of red and black berries. The wine is deep purple, structured with notes of cherry, fig, and rose petals. Hints of dark chocolate and wood spice give the wine ample frame and structure. The 2016 vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was truly special. You can taste it in the wine.

While there is definitely a Pretty Woman movie connection with this bottle of cab and the "Pretty Woman" from Edward Lewis, stylistically this cab is a completely different beast, in style and flavor profile. Much more robust on the palate, the tannins are quite present and chalky. Not that that's a bad thing. This is definitely a bottle of cab I'd want to buy more than several of, and keep revisiting year after year to see how much this will evolve over time. I know it's going to be awesome. If you're looking for fantastic Napa cab to cellar, this is at such an awesome price currently, I wouldn't pass this up.
