Three's a charm. Named after Dennis's third son, this is our 3rd bottling of Mason's Cabernet, with previous vintages from 2006 and his birth year 2003. Mason's newest wine is his biggest and best yet. Saturated kirsch-like black fruits mingle seamlessly with savory oak spices in this complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (92%), Cabernet Franc (4%), Merlot (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%) all sourced from the same vineyards as our Napa Valley Cabernet. Youthful flavors of berry, malt chocolate and plum turn slightly more serious with supple tannins.
At 9 years old Mason is the youngest family member and our 2010 bottling of Mason’s Cabernet is packed with youth and exuberance. Like a fresh-baked pastry with berry filling the wine is full of jammy fruit and loaded with chocolate cherry and savory oak spices. The palate is high-energy with bright flavors and a hint of red licorice before youthful tannins sprint to a tidy finish.
|In 1992 Debbie and Randy Lewis established a small family winery in Napa Valley and were later joined by their son Dennis in 1999. Total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
We are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales and distribution, and we thrive on this challenge and the relationships we cultivate in the process. It is our continuing goal to create world-class wines.
