Anakota Cabernet Sauvignon 'Helena Dakota Vineyard' 2019

This item is sold out, and we keep it in our database for information purposes only.
Product description

Helena Dakota is a tour de force of ripe black currant, blueberry compote, fresh pencil shavings, and subtle toasted cardamom aromatics. The palate is supple and rich, perfectly balancing this wine’s firm structure, leading to a long finish of bittersweet dark baking chocolate, marked by fruit and iron minerality.

99 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard explodes with violets, aniseed and cast iron, with a deep core of crushed blueberries and black cherries, evolving continually with each approach to the glass. The palate is stunning with its intensity and lift, pure fruits, pixelated tannins and focused acidity that drives the very long finish. Its exceptional balance and super pure flavors, plus that characteristic streak of iron that appears across the Anakota portfolio, really take the 2019 Helena Dakota to the next level.

97 Points - James Suckling

The essence of cabernet sauvignon on the nose with cassis and fresh flowers. Full-bodied with orange peel, blackberry, cassis and hints of rose stems. Creamy and powdery tannins. Needs time to come together. Try after 2026, but already beautiful.
