Quick Overview

Chris Carpenter’s Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is super-impressive from start to finish. A rich, dark wine, the 2007 saturates the palate with endless layers of huge fruit. Violets, menthol, tar, plums and blueberry jam all flow from this striking wine. Clean veins of piercing, saline Mt. Veeder minerality run through the 2007. Although just bottled, the 2007 is shaping up to be a jewel of wine. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
Lokoya Spring Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Details

Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations. These single-vineyard wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfiltered—resulting in the purest expression of place. They are powerful wines that reflect the intense individuality of each mountain. Located on the western ridges of the Mayacamas Range within the Mount Veeder appellation, Veeder Peak Vineyard sits at a lofty elevation of 1,800 feet. Since 1995, Lokoya has fashioned an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from a small block on our estate vineyard. Though morning sun tempers the climate on Mount Veeder, shallow soil profiles combined with a low concentration of minerals and nutrients challenge the vitality of the Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Struggling in this mountainous volcanic terrain forces the vines to seek out nutrients and in turn produce berries with intensely concentrated fruit. “Imagine the thrill and excitement as you throttle the engine of an F-14 Tomcat - right before you launch yourself off the deck of an aircraft carrier. With this sensation in mind you can envision tasting the 2007 Lokoya Mount Veeder with its jet engine of structure, blueberry jam, minerality and violets. That is a wine that is sure to take you to Mach-5 in no time.”
