Lokoya Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$374.99

Rare new release from one of California's finest Cabernet producers. Limited. 100 Points Robert Parker: "100 Points Robert Parker:  "A wine offering notes of grilled steak, steak tartare, beef blood, blueberries and blackberries galore is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder. Everything here emerges from the Jackson-owned Veeder Peak Vineyard. Chris Carpenter agrees that this has to be one of the greatest vintages he’s ever had the pleasure to work with – and he has some serious experience under his belt. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine is utterly profound, and while the scoring system ends at 100, if I had to pick a single wine that may have been my favorite of all the tastings I did in Napa, this could have been my pick. Full-bodied, rich, with incredible integration of its component parts of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, the wine is lavishly built, has compelling purity, richness and density, and a finish, again, that rivals that of the Howell Mountain, being close to one minute in length. This wine will be certainly approachable young, but last 30-40+ years."

Revisit this in 15 years. Great now, but needs resolution of the tannins. Big fruit. Lovely floral notes.

Mmmmm!! Liked the blue fruit & spice in this, round and bold and more tannic than Lokoya's other 2013s but still not overly so.

Tied for wine of the trip. A monster now but this is going to be insane with time. Classic Veeder mountain fruit lots of black and blue fruits. Built for the long haul.
