Notes from the Winemaker:
Running northeast to southwest on the eastern side of scenic Highway 128, the Helena Montana vineyard offers ever-changing topography, including rolling hills and steep benches with slopes of up to 30 degrees. This juxtaposition of hills, knolls and trees routes cool, westerly winds away from the vines. Planting vines perpendicular to the prevailing winds provides even more protection. A pure mountain stream and rocky ridge separate this vineyard from our Helena Dakota vineyard.

Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Knights Valley
Elevation: 950 feet
Alcohol: 14.1%
Aging: 13 months, 70% new French oak barrels

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard gives up notes of coffee grounds, chocolate box and warm blueberries with hints of black currant cordial and blackberry pie, plus touches of tar and black soil. Medium-bodied and totally laden with tightly packed fruit layers and great tension, it has a very firm frame of grainy tannins and epic length. 847 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Dec 2017)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Anakota's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana is fabulous. Rich, sensual and enveloping, the 2015 captures all the allure that defines the best wines of the year. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, wild flowers and spice all mesh together in this ample, creamy Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. As always, the Helena Montana presents a decidedly fruit-driven personality next to the more savory Helena Dakota." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)
