Tasting Notes

WA96

The 2012s are the most showy and forward of the three vintages, which is not surprising, since the vintage is flamboyant and they are already three years of age. Even as impressive, but showing more truffles, charcoal, graphite and camphor, along with blackberry and cassis, is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota (1,017 cases). This wine shows even more fruit than its sibling and is bigger, bolder and slightly broader across the palate. All these wine are highly recommended and are brilliant efforts, but will probably need coaxing and patience in the cellar, given their rather bigger-than-life styles and richness.

The Winery

Anakota

The wines of Anakota stand alone as singular expressions of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two distinct vineyard sites: Helena Montana and Helena Dakota. The vineyards highlight two distinct facets of our Knights Valley estate. Their boundaries are set not by a surveyor’s transit, but by the subtle variations of topography and geology. Both vineyards dart and weave their way around cold mountain streams, thick underbrush, groves of native trees and open fields. They follow the subtle contours of the earth climbing up the southwest-facing hillsides of our property.
