Lokoya, Mount Veeder, Napa Valley, 2009

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich tarry blackcurrant nose, very dense and imposing. Broad, rich, and tannic, with powerful black fruits and a textured earthiness. A touch extracted, but there’s persuasive fruit here, though it lacks elegance. Long, robust finish.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is rich with notes of cooked black fruits and a lot of earthy aromas. The alcohol is slightly too high for my taste and this will need a bit more time before it’s ready.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Truckloads of high quality oak and fruit and tannin. Oak is overshadowing the supple fruit right now. Will it integrate in time?
