  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Medium ruby-red. Plum and redcurrant liqueur plus a strong component of tarry oak on the nose. Fat, sweet and round, with a flavor of candied redcurrants. A bit chunky and obvious but nicely balanced and not heavy. Finishes with good length and even tannins.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    There are 1,000 cases of the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford. It offers a distinctive kirsch, black cherry liqueur, and loamy soil-scented character to its full-bodied richness. It is expansive and charming. Full-bodied, with admirable depth and purity, this wine can be drunk now as well as over the next 20 years.

  • 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.
