Lokoya Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$349.99

Rare new release from one of California's finest Cabernet producers. Limited.99 Points Robert Parker: "From a high-elevation vineyard that was replanted in 2006, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain reveals an opaque purple color as well as notes of mulberries, graphite, blackberries and a hint of charcoal. This dramatic, ostentatious 2012 is in keeping with the stylistic characteristics of this vintage. Multidimensional, stunningly pure and rich, it is a beauty that flirts with perfection. Drink now-2032......It will be hard to eclipse the quality of this quartet of 100% Cabernet Sauvignons from the Jackson Family boutique winery of Lokoya, fashioned by their brilliant winemaker, Chris Carpenter. Lokoya’s offerings are consistently among the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons made, and their 2012s represent the pinnacle of what Chris Carpenter has been accomplishing from these vineyards. All four wines are aged in 100% new oak and are bottled with minimal clarification. They are extraordinary expressions of their terroirs. The late Jess Jackson’s firm convictions in mountain vineyards is vindicated by these prodigious wines."

I can understand RP's 100 points. On the palate it's perfect, but there's a hint of raisins on the nose, leading me to think that it's lifespan is limited. That said, it's awesome!

This was just f'n out of this world. I don't generally drink Napa cab this young but I may need to change my thoughts on that. Such a rich, distinctive, ethereal beauty. Strong and bold but so much finesse and fruit just at the apex of perfect ripeness.
