Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

Mineral, blueberry, plum, and earthy characteristics can be found in the dark purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (700 cases). Soft in the mouth, but full-bodied, dense, and rich, it is an immensely impressive effort.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Good full red. Briary aromas of cassis, bitter cherry, smoke, shoe polish and leather. Dense and penetrating, with strong dark berry flavors that offer enticing subtle sweetness. Comes across as less broad but more filled in than the Diamond Mountain bottling. Tannins are substantial but softer than those of the above sample.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Dense, tannic and earthy, with spicy herb, pepper and wild berry flavors. The tannins are industrial strength, but polished enough to drink in a year or two. 689 cases made.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
