Rare new release from one of California's finest Cabernet producers. Limited.98 Points Robert Parker: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain exhibits blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, ink and floral notes, and softer, lusher tannins than the Diamond Mountain cuvée. Voluptuously textured, full-bodied and opulent, this complex 2012 should continue to drink beautifully for 15+ years......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."
