Notes from the Winemaker:
Established in 1993, the Spring Mountain District appellation sits above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, which separate Napa Valley from Sonoma County. First crafted in 2005, the Lokoya Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is primarily sourced from three vineyards: the estate-owned Yverdon vineyard (2,100 feet), the Wurtele vineyard (1,000 feet) and Spring Mountain Vineyard (1,800 feet). Cool daytime temperatures, deficient soil and sharply inclined vineyard terraces combine to create ideal growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines from Spring Mountain express a signature floral perfume, deep red fruit flavors and smooth tannins.

Ratings & Reviews

99 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Also borderline perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District offers more conifer and pine forest notes as well as vivid blueberry fruits, a full-bodied, intense, layered mouthfeel, thrilling elegance, and a big finish. My note on this one was sprinkled with a few expletives and this wine has everything you could want from Cabernet Sauvignon. As with the other 2016s from Chris, 2-4 years of bottle age are recommended." (1/31/2019)

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored and made up of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain gives up tantalizing notes of licorice, chocolate box and spearmint over a core of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and kirsch plus wafts of roses and fertile loam. Full-bodied, firm and oh-so-minerally in the mouth, it has a solid structure of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note. 825 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Oct 2018)

95+ Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Spring Mountain) is supple, silky and remarkably pure, with striking nuance to match its soft contours and plush fruit. Resonant and enveloping, with terrific depth, the 2016 is striking today. The Spring Mountain is the most open and inviting of the Lokoya Cabernets, but ideally readers should give it a few years in the cellar, which will allow the full range of aromatics to develop. " - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2018)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Big and chewy red with blueberries and blackberries and fresh-herb undertones. Full-bodied and chewy. Boisterous and solid. Needs five to six years to soften." (2/4/2019)
