2010 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1192945 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The same can be said for the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard. However, it offers sweeter tannins as well as slightly more evolved and complex aromas of unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco, graphite, blackberries, cassis, spring flowers and a distinctive minerality. Although deep, full-bodied and backward, the sweet fruit and tannin provide a more upfront character than the 2009. It, too, is a 30-50-year wine. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Anakota's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard is wonderfully alive in the glass. Freshly cut flowers, violets, spices, graphite and mint are all woven together in a Cabernet that has plenty of mountain character as well as pure opulence. All the elements are very much in balance. These red soils rich in volcanic deposits contribute tension and verve as the flavors built to a huge crescendo of intense pleasure. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Cool aromas of crushed blackberry, cassis and minerals, plus a sexy candied note. Thick and powerful if a bit youthfully reduced, boasting strong, rather backward flavors of cassis, chocolate and iron. Finishes with huge, youthfully tough tannins that will require patience. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)
