Additional Information

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 2010 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from the spectacular Keyes Vineyard, our source on Howell Mountain for Lokoya.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, from Keyes Vineyard, is one of the most powerful wines in the Lokoya lineup. Firm tannins support a core of explosive dark blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, menthol and licorice, all of which come to life in a decidedly powerful, super-intense expression of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. There is no shortage of personality here. Full-bodied and vibrant, the take-no-holds 2010 is going to require patience, but it is beautiful, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.
