Winemaker's Notes

When uplifting tectonic plates created the Mayacamas Range, they left Howell Mountain in a unique position in Napa Valley. On this eastern side of the valley, one would expect to see the scrub oak and grassland found elsewhere. But the north-owing air mass that moves across this spot makes Howell Mountain the coldest and wettest appellation in Napa. Thus, the ponderosa pine and redwoods that dot the mountain help dene it. Blackberry, minerality, and dark chocolate dene the 2009 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from the spectacular Keyes Vineyard, our source on Howell Mountain for Lokoya.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol and cocoa powder. Supple, lush and broad, with enticing sweetness to the black raspberry and chocolate flavors. Not the last word in density or flesh but a nice concentrated wine with a ripe vein of acidity and rather easygoing tannins that give it lovely early appeal. Finishes long and pure."
92 Points

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (from Keyes Vineyard) is a big, broad shouldered wine loaded with black fruit, smoke and licorice. Chocolate, blackberries, cinnamon, licorice and spices are wrapped around the plush, muscular finish."

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,...
