The poet Carl Sandburg once wrote of Chicago as "City of the Big Shoulders," a metaphor often evoked to describe the hardworking nature of its people, the complexity of its population and the structure that these combined features promised for a great future. The description works just as well for Lokoya's 2014 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, with its broad tannins, complex aromas of dark berry, espresso, and minerality, and a future as sure to develop and grow as Chicago's lake shore skyline.

Wine AdvocateFrom the micro-terroir of the W. S. Keyes Vineyard on Howell Mountain, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is pushing perfection. Its incredibly opaque color is followed by notes of lead pencil shavings, mulberry, blackberry and dark raspberry fruit, some background oak and minerality, and profound richness in a full-bodied, multi-dimensional style. It is gorgeously ripe, and sexy already, with a lush and voluptuous texture. Drink it over the next 25+ years.
