2000 Lokoya Diamond Mountain District Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

I had two of these sitting in my cellar since they were released. I think that I paid about $120 for them. I remember at the time that I first tasted this wine that I thought it was about the best wine that I had ever tasted.

I decided to open the first one a couple of weeks ago, and I decanted it. It was wonderful, in fact I didn’t think it could get any better so I’ve now opened the second one.

The wine is dark purple and the aroma is of leather and cigar box and dark fruit.

The taste does not disappoint with nice dark cherry, a bit of coffee, a bit of chocolate and a lot of leather.
