Dana Estates produces three single vineyards wines, from sites that are dramatically different from one another. Each vineyard is farmed organically at low yields to allow the unique qualities of each site to be expressed in the bottle.


AG (93-95) Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The wine most marked by the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard possesses all of the hallmarks of this site, but in a smaller-scaled frame than is normal. In 2011, it is the wine's balance that stands out most. Sweet floral notes, mint and spices add a measure of lift to a Cabernet Sauvignon that today shows the feminine, delicate side of the year.


According to Robert Parker - Not surprisingly, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard (308 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged 20 months in new French oak) is a lighter style, but it is a successful effort from this vineyard’s decomposed, rocky, volcanic soils. Well-made with no herbaceousness, it offers pretty blueberry and raspberry flavors intertwined with wet rocks, spring flowers and background oak. Bottled early to preserve its fruit, it should be enjoyed over the next 10+ years. Rated 90+
