Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most renowned mountain appellations: Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain,
Diamond Mountain District and Spring Mountain District.
These single-vineyard wines, made in very limited quantities, are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeasts and bottled unfined and unfiltered. This results in powerful
wines that reflect the intense individuality of each mountain vineyard.
Winemaker Christopher Carpenter believes that the art of great winemaking is knowing when to intervene in the vineyard and the cellar and when to leave the fruit alone so that it can express itself as naturally and eloquently as possible. It requires skill and insight to harness the concentrated fruit flavours from high elevation sites with meagre soils, whilst also taming the intense tannins from these small, thick-skinned grapes.
