RANDY LEWIS is one of Napa's premier winemakers. Virtually everything he makes scores well into the 90's with the Wine spectator. His 2003 Chardonnay, incorporating some of our fruit, was called by the Wine Spectator "the superstar of the vintage" and featured on the cover. In ten consecutive years dealing with our fruit, he has never received less than a"93". We are thrilled to have his help crafting a 100% estate grown Chardonnay.
