2010 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1192944 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard is cut from the same cloth. Its opaque purple color and sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with crushed rock and forest floor notes lead to a broad, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel with excruciatingly high tannins and intense power and richness. It should be forgotten for at least a decade. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Lovely lift to the aromas of black fruits and leather. Juicy and intense but not yet as expressive as the Helena Dakota (the Montana has a slightly lower pH). The black fruit flavors offers excellent definition though, and are joined by dark chocolate on the powerful, broad, very long finish, which features big, ripe, horizontal tannins and excellent lift. Both of these 2010s are powerful and dense without being excessively high in alcohol. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Extremely pretty dark fruits with rose and lilac character. Full body, soft tannins and a delicately fruity finish. All in finesse. Always classy. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby to the rim. The nose shows more mineral lift but less fruit expressiveness than the Helena Dakota, offering hints of blackberry, cassis, menthol, flowers and spices. Sweet, dense and fine-grained but quite powerful too, conveying strong rocky minerality and verve. A bit less pliant on the finish than the Helena Dakota but the firm tannins are ripe and suave. Really stains the palate with violet. A higher-pitched wine than the Helena Dakota and a bit more tightly wound, reflecting its vineyard's somewhat higher altitude, but with its lovely floral lift and superb definition, this boasts outstanding potential for further development in bottle. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (5/2020)
