Lokoya Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is as compelling a Cabernet Sauvignon as one could ever hope to taste. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a high-elevation site boasts an inky/purple color, and smells of ink, blueberry liqueur, blackberries, black raspberries, mulberries, licorice, charcoal and camphor. With magnificent fruit richness, a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and incredible length, this seamlessly constructed 2012 should provide immense pleasure for 25+ years. Kudos to winemaker Chris Carpenter as he is clearly at the top of his game.
Dusty, cedary oak nuances stand apart from the core red berry and blackberry fruit, giving this a drying sensation. Time should help, but for now this remains top-heavy and woody. Best from 2017 through 2027. 1,307 cases made.
