Anakota Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard Knights Valley 2014

External Review:

The estates 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard wraps around the palate with serious depth in its purple fruit grilled savory herbs licorice mint and white flowers. A rich powerful wine the 2008 impresses for its totally expressive layered personality. At the same time firm mountain tannins support the finish and add compelling vibrancy. This dark brooding beauty is a bit of a brute today but there is plenty of intensity and more than enough balance to make me think the wine will be delicious in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Bright, deep ruby. Vibrant, complex aromas and flavors of cassis, licorice pastille, spices and flowers. Penetrating, dense and juicy, with a slowly building sweetness that carries through to the very long, tannic, gripping finish. Still youthfully i... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits an unmistakable minerality with a volcanic rock/burning ember/scorched earth component to its beautifully pure black currant fruit.

Anakota is one of the late Jess Jackson’s flagship estates, producing small quantities of outstanding Cabernets intended to showcase the potential of these vineyards on Mount St. Helena in the Knight’s Valley AVA. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon planted at 700-900 foot elevations. This wine is aged 14 months in French oak. The vineyards are located a stone's throw from Peter Michael’s exceptional Les Pavots. Robert Parker scored this 92 points saying "Setting the bar high for a Knight’s Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, more structure and tannin than its sibling, along with abundant amounts of creme de cassis fruit intermixed with notions of licorice and flowers. Structured with good minerality as well as a spicy, full-bodied finish, it should be at its peak between 2007-2018+."
