100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate-owned Yverdon vineyard at 2,100 feet, Wurtele vineyard at 1,000 feet, and Spring Mountain Vineyard at 1,800 feet. Jeb Dunnuck swore, “Also borderline perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District offers more conifer and pine forest notes as well as vivid blueberry fruits, a full-bodied, intense, layered mouthfeel, thrilling elegance, and a big finish. My note on this one was sprinkled with a few expletives and this wine has everything you could want from Cabernet Sauvignon.”

Lokoya Winery is a true jewel of the Napa Valley, and the benchmark producer of "mountain wines" in our book. From four mountain appellations they craft exquisite Cabernet Sauvignons, and to say that they are critically acclaimed is an understatement. The Wine Advocate has awarded the Lokoya Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon no less than FIVE 100-point scores, a feat surpassed only by Schrader Winery. The wines are made by Napa Valley Superman Chris Carpenter, who can do no wrong, especially in 2014. "One of the top-of-the-charts, special, rare superstars of the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wine scene is Lokoya. It's hard to believe that 2000 was the first vintage for winemaker Chris Carpenter working at Lokoya. He has had a succession of world-class, truly magnificent wines from different mountain sites in Napa." – Robert M. Parker, Jr. A 99-Point score is a curious thing, a 99+ even curiouser. It's another way for a reviewer to say, "I gave this 100 points last year." One thing's for certain: these are some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines made in the Napa Valley, and they belong in your cave.

Also borderline perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District offers more conifer and pine forest notes as well as vivid blueberry fruits, a full-bodied, intense, layered mouthfeel, thrilling elegance, and a big finish. My note on this one was sprinkled with a few expletives and this wine has everything you could want from Cabernet Sauvignon. As with the other 2016s from Chris, 2-4 years of bottle age are recommended.

Deep garnet-purple colored and made up of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain gives up tantalizing notes of licorice, chocolate box and spearmint over a core of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and kirsch plus wafts of roses and fertile loam. Full-bodied, firm and oh-so-minerally in the mouth, it has a solid structure of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note. 825 cases produced.
