Our Impressions:
Last year when we offered these wines to you, we pointed out that master winemaker Pierre Seillan, who is the genius behind the Bordeaux-inspired blends at Vérité. He is behind this project and is crafting elegant age-worthy wines. His Vérité wines have received seven perfect 100 point scores from Robert Parker, more than any other Sonoma winery.

Pierre's other project, Anakota, focuses on crafting 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines from single-vineyards in Sonoma's Knights Valley. The end result are two wines that possess the great refinement and finesse, along with the ability to age, that reminds us of the legendary Napa Cabs of the 70s and 80s.

The two wines we are offering today come from Anakota's prized estate-owned vineyards, Helena Dakota and Helena Montana. These two Cabernets have the depth, complexity and length to rival almost anything that comes from the Napa, and the current 2010 vintage has even higher scores than last year's 2009 vintage! 

Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, 96+ Pts., Oct 2013:
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard offers sweet 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 than the 2009. 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"

Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, 95+ Pts., Oct 2013:
"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.”

“Made by Kendall-Jackson’s Bordelais winemaker Pierre Seillan, these wines represent the pinnacle of what they hope to achieve in high elevation sites in Knights Valley, an area increasingly being utilized by Napa producers given the great success Peter Michael and Kendall-Jackson have had in this region. These limited production 2009s and 2010s made at high elevation vineyards (Helena Dakota is at 750 feet, and the Helena Montana is at 950 feet) have not yet been released. These highly extracted, rich, full-bodied wines may have limited appeal given their aging potential and broodingly backward characters. All of these offerings are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that were aged in 100% French oak for 15 months prior to bottling. The alcohols came in between 14.2% and 14.8%. I gave slightly higher scores to the Helena Dakota cuvees, perhaps because they were showing more accessibility."
