Winemaker's Notes

Along the eastern side of the Napa Valley's Vaca Range, Howell Mountain peaks at 2,500 feet. Since 1995, Lokoya has crafted a distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate vineyard on Howell Mountain. Surrounded by redwoods and towering pine trees, our Keyes Vineyard personifies the appellation's cool climate and long growing season, challenging the vines to ripen. At a steep 1,900 foot elevation with a northwest-facing slope, the Lokoya block has soil that boasts a combination of large sandstone rocks, volcanic ash, red clay and conifer bio-matter, lending itself to the density and texture of the wine while revealing an earthy and herbal perfume.

Jack London's use of language invites you to explore wild places that have a unique depth and beauty. He offers a tapestry of emotion that underscores the breath of the story you are reading.

The 2007 Lokoya Howell Mountain creates that same feeling with incredible dark fruit components of blackberry and boysenberry, espresso bean, minerality, smoke, and spice. The complexity of flavor is an unmistakable evocation of the Howell Mountain landscape.

Critical Acclaim

"Classic aromas of graphite, crushed rocks, boysenberries, black raspberries, blackberries, and subtle wood soar from the glass of the inky/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Full-bodied and formidably endowed with awesome purity as well as a stunning, layered texture, this beauty has it all. Give it 5-6 years of bottle age and enjoy it over the next three decades. It is a prodigious Howell Mountain wine from Jess Jackson’s Keyes Vineyard."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
