The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard from the Napa Valley is a brilliant effort that flirts with perfection (much like the 2007). Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 24 months in 100% new French oak (225 cases produced), it boasts beautiful ripe black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with hints of licorice, violets and forest floor. With more ripeness as well as a bigger, richer style than the other 2010s as well as formidable structure and tannin, this is a quintessentially gorgeous, compelling Napa Cabernet that is accessible enough to provide enjoyment now. It should improve over the next decade and keep for 25-30 years.

Higher-toned on the nose than the Helms bottling, showing superripe dark fruit, cola and exotic chocolatey oak aromas. Extremely deep and creamy-sweet on the palate, with a dominant flavor of blueberry liqueur and a texture of liquid velvet. Finishes with powerful ripe tannins and a hint of dryness. This is almost too much of a good thing.
