Anakota Helena Montana Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2003

External Review by WineExpress.com:

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+."
