The vineyards of the historic Lewelling estate were established in 1864 near the western foothills in St. Helena by pioneer winegrower and horticulturist John Lewelling. Janice Lewelling Wight, John Lewelling's great-granddaughter, and her husband Russ, together with their three sons, Alan, Doug and Dave, operate a 28-acre vineyard on a portion of the original estate, one of the oldest continuously-owned family vineyards in the Napa Valley.
Over the years Lewelling Vineyards has consistently harvested exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes that have been sold to such fine Napa Valley wineries as Caymus, Galleron, Markham, Viader and Beaulieu Vineyards. With encouragement and assistance from some of these producers, the Wight family began production in 1992 of their own vineyard-designated wine. Each member of the family plays a role in crafting Lewelling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
Tasting Notes: Wine Advocate 92 points - The inky purple 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon displays plenty of classic creme de cassis and lead pencil shavings along with some licorice, charcoal and vanilla notes. It is full-bodied and opulent, with good integration of sweet tannin and bright acids. This wine is still young but approachable, and certainly capable of evolving for 10-15+ years..Robert M.
