*Three Stars* As deep and defined and impressively structured as any wine in this issue, Lewis adds to its recent string of show-stopping Char-donnay successes with a Cabernet that stands with the best. A big, highly extracted wine whose concentration and sheer sense of scale are matched by few, it shows layer upon layer of cassis, creamy oak, cola, chocolate, coffee and loamy soil qualities that outdistance its ample young tannins and handily buffer its scant edge of heat. Downright enthralling, yet only a shadow of what it is bound to become, it deserves seeking out and needs to be cellared for ten or more years.
Maturing nicely, with rich, mocha-laced blackberry wild berry flavors, accented by anise and black licorice notes. The tannins are firm and still assertive, raising the question of when or whether they might ease up. Drink now through 2025. (JL, Web-2015)
