Anakota Helena Dakota Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
The Cabernet Sauvignon from Helena Dakota is large and dark with notes of espresso, chocolate, blackberries, cassis and wet stone. This 12.4 acre vineyard runs southeast to northwest on the eastern side of scenic Highway 128 and possesses slopes of up to 15 degrees. Prevailing westerly winds pass over a large, cold pond and blow uphill, parallel to the rows of vines. These cooling breezes slow down the ripening of the grapes and result in wines that are packed with elegance, complexity and finesse.
