Product Overview

The 2015 Anakota Helena Montana Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is lush, velvety, and opulent, and chronicles the terroir at this steep, Knights Valley hillside site with an elevation of 950 feet. The 2015 vintage in Knights Valley was powerful, providing full ripeness and deep concentration in the fruit. On the nose there are notes of mocha, toasted graham cracker, and black tea leaf while the palate displays ripe raspberry, roasted beet, and hints of dried cranberry and black cherry. The wine is balanced by the welcome combination of brusque tannin and very bright acidity which will result in remarkable ageability, up to 20 years.

Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Knights Valley AVA
Aging: 13 months in French oak barrels, 70% new
Winemaker: Pierre Seillan

96 Points - 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." -LPB, 12/29/17

93 Points - 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." -AG, Apr/2018
