"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard is truly one of the profound wines of the vintage. Aged 24 months in 90% new French oak, it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from their most precocious and earliest to ripen Cabernet site. Dense blue purple, as are the other wines, it separates itself with its extraordinarily flowery, blueberry and blackberry scented aromatics. The wine is dense and multidimensional, full bodied and opulent, with low acidity and fabulous silky, pure fruit. This wine is best drunk over the next two decades. Production of the Lotus single vineyard is the smallest at 250 cases."
