I met Barbara R. Banke, widow of Jess Jackson, at the Louis C. Jacob Hotel in Hamburg. Together we tasted the new releases of the Lokoya Winery and a tremendous 2006 Cardinale. Now i get it clear, why the Nappa Valley brings such luscious wines on the map.

This wine needs definitely time to blossom completely and if you´re patient it will credit you with an incredible opulence and complexity. Aromas of blackberries, eucalyptus, tar, mocha, chocolate and cigar-box are playing a beautiful symphony together in this full-bodied and high expressive juice. Really special with a vibrant and balanced acidity. Maserati tannins, which will age this wine still for many years. Minerals and forest floor. Good night finish. Best now through 2035.
