Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple and ruby color. Complex Cabernet aromas of earth, plum, cassis, tar and sweet herbs. Very intense. The rich fruit is heightened by sweet vanilla and cardamom spice from the best French oak barrels. Elegant and mouthfilling with a long finish. A powerful wine, with soft and silky tannins. Will cellar quite well.
My Notes:

About Lokoya:

Lokoya's first vintage was in 1995, with a distinct collection of Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, Mount Vedeer, Howell Mountain and Diamond Mountain. Lokoya produces minute quantities of appellation specific Cabernet Sauvignon from low vigor vineyard sites in the Napa Valley.
