 It possesses layers of plums, anise, cassis, leather, bay leaf and cedar. Galvanized by a streak of minerals and bold tannins. Helena Dakota is a solidly-built wine that stands the test of time. Pierre says the Cabernet from Helena Dakota remind him of Pauillac or Saint-Estèphe.

This sloping, 12-acre vineyard runs southwest to northeast at roughly 750 feet above sea level. It features soft, reddish brown, gravelly, silt loam soils speckled with rocks. Prevailing westerly winds blow over a large pond and continue uphill parallel to the rows of vines. These cooling breezes slow the ripening process creating wines that are both powerful and balanced

Back in the late 1990s, exploration began for new locations to grow Grand Cru-level Cabernet Sauvignon. The goal was to find a site that could deliver the opulence and concentration of Napa coupled with the acidity, precision and age-worthiness of Sonoma. The perfect site was found in the Kinghts Valley AVA, a little-known wine region that earned AVA status in 1983. We named our ranch Anakota and in 1997 began surveying the terrain, analyzing the soils and planting vines. Today, under the direction of Vigneron Pierre Seillan, small quantities of single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons are made from two hillside estate vineyards: Helena Dakota and Helena Montana
