1997 Lokoya Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain
The volcanic rock and ash soil of Reverie Vineyard stresses the vines, resulting in smaller fruit laden with black cherry and currant flavors. The steep, terraced slope faces west and cane-pruned vines allow for maximum sunlight exposure for the fruit. The vines are spaced six feet apart and planted with several different clones including Sees, Clone #7 and Jordan. These vines first produced grapes in 1991.
