Lokoya Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine SpectatorDusty, cedary oak nuances stand apart from the core red berry and blackberry fruit, giving this a drying sensation. Time should help, but for now this remains top-heavy and woody. Best from 2017 through 2027. 1,307 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is as compelling a Cabernet Sauvignon as one could ever hope to taste. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a high-elevation site boasts an inky/purple color, and smells of ink, blueberry liqueur, blackberries, black raspberries, mulberries, licorice, charcoal and camphor. With magnificent fruit richness, a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and incredible length, this seamlessly constructed 2012 should provide immense pleasure for 25+ years. Kudos to winemaker Chris Carpenter as he is clearly at the top of his game.
