Cabernet Sauvignon

Lokoya, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1999

RRP £220

Owned by Jackson Family Wines and made by Chris Carpenter, who looks a bit like Donald Sutherland and moonlights as a barman on Friday nights, Lokoya is a Parker favourite, and none the worse for that. At 20 years old it’s assured and youthful, a beautiful deep garnet in colour, very fine nose with briar and blackberry, an intense fresh, bright palate with fine acidity and deep red fruit bolstered by a juicy tannic rush throughout. Mouthwatering: it’s not the finest of the Lokoyas but the bar is pretty high.
