Anakota Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley Helena Montana Vineyard 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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.
