Winemaker's Notes:

Walking our vineyard during harvest on Mount Veeder in the early morning hours, you are struck by an abundance of sun. This is different from other parts of the valley and, for that matter, from our vineyard at other times of day. You look across a great lake of fog below you and up to an azure sky and realize that what denes Mount Veeder is an intensity of light. This intensity has the effect on the 2009 Mount Veeder of concentrated blue fruits, chewable tannins, and a mild coffee roast that carries the avor on your palate far after you have swallowed the wine.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
