LEWIS CELLARS CHARDONNAY RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2014
NVWE Notes: If more dramatic than its Napa sibling, this wine too is notably elegant. The aromas are a youthfully zesty yet forthcoming mix of lemon sorbet, pineapple souffle, fresh Fuji apple, vanilla butter cream and hazelnut scents. That same push of focused fruit and spice is evident on the palate, where the texture is sleek, the balance cutting, and the lemon sorbet, pineapple souffle and hazelnut flavors linger beautifully. Two years from its full expression, it should serve admirably right now, if matched with a richly sauced seafood entree. 1500 cases made, from 40 year old vines.
Ultrarich, with tiers of tight, vibrant peach, pear, fig and tangerine flavors, turning creamy and polished midpalate and soaring from there. Ends with a dash of toasty cedary oak. Drink now through 2021. 1,500 cases made. J.L.
