At elevations ranging from 500 to 2,600 feet, these Napa mountain sites are rare in the world of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lokoya?s mountain Cabernet bottlings express something different; there is a tension to the wines, and immense structural expression balanced by layer upon layer of aromatic intensity and textural hedonism. Highly sought after by collectors, the wines of Lokoya can be enjoyed for decades to come.
The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford (300 cases) possesses the most developed aromatics, consisting of black currants, cherries, loamy soil scents, and pain grille. It is the most expansive and fullest-bodied, with stunningly concentrated flavors that exhibit no angularity or sharpness. The acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood are all gorgeously integrated into this fleshy, succulent, voluptuously-textured wine. The finish lasts for 40+ seconds.
