Lewis Cellars Alec's Blend 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2016 Alec's Blend checks in as a blend of 61% Syrah, 38% Merlot, and the rest Petite Sirah. This deep ruby/purple-colored effort shines on all accounts and offers classy notes of blueberries, ripe black cherries, white flowers, graphite, and flowery, peppery spice. It's medium to full-bodied, has beautiful richness and depth, yet stays lively, pure, and light on its feet. It's a beautiful wine.
Densely complex and expressive, with dark berry, smoky cracked pepper and cardamom flavors that build power toward big, powerful tannins. Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah. Best from 2020 through 2026. 1,100 cases made.
