The Spire Collection

Four Mountains. Four Wines. Established in 1995, Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations. These single- vineyard wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfilteredâ €”resulting in the purest expression of place. They are powerful wines that reflect the intense individuality of each mountain. WINEMAKING Winemaker Chris Carpenter believes that the art of great winemaking is knowing when to intervene in the vineyard and the cellar, and when to leave the fruit alone so that it can express itself as naturally and eloquently as possible. Harnessing the concentrated fruit flavors that result from high elevation sites with meager soils, while also taming the intense tannins from these small, thick-skinned grapes, requires skil TECHNIQUES 1. Precision viticulture and canopy management: canopies are hand-leafed to modify sun exposure in each row for optimal flavor and tannin development 2. Minimal movement of fruit from vineyard to cellar to avoid crushed berries 3. Extensive hand-sorting 4. Wooden basket pressing for tannin management; level of pressing can be monitored and incremental press cuts can be made 5. Specially designed, semi-open top fermenters allow higher Brix levels without increased alcohol 6. Exclusive use of French oak barrels

    Chris Carpenter's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is super-impressive from start to finish. A rich, dark wine, the 2010 saturates the palate with endless layers of huge fruit. Violets, menthol, tar, plums and blueberry jam all flow from this striking wine. Clean veins of piercing, saline Mt. Veeder minerality run through the 2010. Although just bottled, the 2010 is shaping up to be a jewel of wine. Anticipated maturity - R.Parker

    “‘Rock and roll is here to stay, it will never die…’ these are lyrics that convey the attitude and power of their genre. The 2015 Lokoya Mount Veeder could be said to be the rock and roll of the Lokoya lineup. The result of Veeder’s energy, power and longevity, combined with the breadth of blue and dark fruit, Asian spice and notes of cedar, this is a wine that will keep you rockin’ from now until 2050.” — Christopher Carpenter, Winemaker

    “Usually my favorite in many vintages, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is the most backward of the 2014s and actually seems to require 4-5 years of bottle age. The wine has the telltale signs of Mt. Veeder – blackberry and blueberry fruit infused with considerable floral nuances. This wine has all that, then hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, fruit extraction, and layers of blackberry and blueberry fruit. It is full-bodied and opulent, but finishes with some structure and ripe tannin. This is a magnificent wine – full-throttle, extremely pure, and incredibly well-balanced. Give it 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.” R.Parker
