Lokoya's Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a classic Napa style Bordeaux red. A combination of a mild climate (high altitude vineyards) and poor soils yields full-bodied reds with rich black cherry flavour, dark chocolate with relatively soft tannins.

"...evocative red and black currant-scented nose with nuances of spice box, lavender, tilled soil and chargrill plus a hint of tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is firm and fine grained, with lovely red and black fruit layers, finishing long and earthy."

"One of the superstars of the Kendall-Jackson portfolio, the Lokoya wines all come from four microclimates in Napa Valley, are made by the brilliant Chris Carpenter… They have been on an absolute qualitative tear for a number of years and seem to go from strength to strength. We’re dealing with possibly the greatest vintage I have tasted in 37 years of visits to Napa Valley." eRobertParker.com

"Lavender, licorice and white flowers add nuance to a core of inky blue/purplish fruit. Medium in body and nicely lifted, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Best of all, it should drink well with only minimal cellaring. Graphite, crème de cassis and licorice appear on the nuanced finish." Vinous
