Anakota

The 2006 Helena Dakota Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine with a deep, dark red color. The nose presents notes of vanilla and oak. On the palate is an explosion of red fruits and minerality supported by a very round structure. The tannins are mature and present a long finish with hints of blonde tobacco. This wine can be decanted and enjoyed now, or it can be placed in your cellar. Before 2011, decant for full enjoyment.

Wine Advocate

Readers looking for slightly more structure and a Mouton Rothschild-like nose of creme de cassis, licorice, black currants, cedar, and a hint of bay leaf should check out the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota. The fruit for this full-bodied, powerful Cabernet was harvested ten days later than that of the Helena Montana. The tannic, impressively endowed, full-bodied Helena Dakota is clearly meant for true connoisseurs with cold cellars as well as the patience to wait 5-6 years for it to evolve. It is a 25- to 30-year wine ... at the minimum.

Score: 95+. —Robert Parker, February 2010.
