Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 98

Amazing depth, richness, complexity and concentration here--and impeccable balance. Offers layers of plush black cherry, wild berry, currant, plum, anise and sage, finishing in a long, detailed aftertaste. Has the tannic strength to age. 268 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

Saturated ruby-blue. Superripe yet very bright aromas of black cherry, blackberry, flowers and spices. Very dense and powerful, with beautifully delineated floral and dark berry flavors. Already offers compelling inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with powerful but ripe tannins and superb persistence. A big wine with a lot of everything.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The opaque purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder (220 cases), from an elevation of 1500 feet, reveals classic creme de cassis/mineral aromas, a superb mid-palate, and a full-bodied personality with impressive length and purity. It is not for readers desiring immediate gratification as it requires 4-5 years of cellaring.

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.
