Winemaker's Notes:

Lokoya produces minute quantities of appellation-specific Cabernet Sauvignon from low-vigor vineyard sites in the Napa Valley. By selecting only the finest vineyards and farming each parcel to accentuate its unique attributes, Lokoya produces powerful and complex wines that reflect the distinct character of each appellation in which they are grown.

"Walking Mount Veeder as the geese cross overhead and the rattlesnakes bask in the sun, you are instantly transported back to the days of the early Napa Valley pioneers. There is a sense here of the strength of those pioneers and the beauty they sought, which gives one an understanding of the 2008 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. With intense minerality, violets on the nose, and dark fruit, currant, and roasted characteristics on the palate, this wine is sure to carry for many years to come." - Christopher Carpenter, Winemaker
