Saturated ruby-red. Brooding, tight nose hints at briary blackberry, medicinal black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Fat and broad in the mouth, but more juicy and less filled in than the Rutherford bottling. Distinctly briary berry flavors. Not currently showing the thickness and sweetness of fruit a barrel sample of this juice displayed last year. A more muscular, structured style of cabernet whose big, dusty mountain tannins will require several years to harmonize with the wine's fruit.

Wow. Blueberry and cassis nose. Mocha Cocoa and dark fruit on the palate. Sweet tannins, very balanced and long finish.

About This Producer

Lokoya wines are identified with the terroir of Napa's mountain vineyards. Sparse soils, high elevations, good drainage, and the cool climates of the mountains and benches form the backbone for intense Cabernet Sauvignons.

Lokoya's goal is to choose sites, lots, and rows of vines that express the terroir and identity of their location through their wines.
