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

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, December 2017 “Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain leaps from the glass with vibrant black currant cordial, blueberry and black cherry scents with touches of tree bark, black pepper, rose hip tea and violets. The medium to full-bodied palate has a solid structure of firm, chewy tannins supporting the muscular fruit, finishing with great freshness and plenty of latent depth. Give it another 2–3 years in bottle and drink it over the next 30+.” “Soul music is about heart, it’s about the scent of a loved one, it’s about passion and the strength to sing about it. Lokoya’s soulful 2015 Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is about perfumed aromatics, black cherry and dragon fruit flavors with the structure to carry it all – such that when you get that feeling, you’ll definitely want Spring Mountain healing.” — 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
