Available for:
A dark violet core of color gives rise to flavors of crunchy black cherry, ripe black currant, and fresh California Bay Laurel, accentuated with subtle baking spices and bittersweet baking cocoa. These vibrant flavors wash across the palate, joined by crushed stone minerality from the volcanic soils of our Knights Valley vineyards. Luxuriously firm tannins and bright acidity imparted by a very fine vintage, balance the exuberance of the fruit, leading to a very long finish.

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is the second vintage of Anakota's second-label Cabernet, meant for drinking in the near term rather than the cellaring required for the Helena Dakota and Helena Montana. "I may make more in the future where I can, but it depends on the vintage," assistant winemaker and second-generation vigneron Hélène Seillan says. It's blended with 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot and was matured for 12 months in 30% new French oak. Already bottled, it offers pretty aromas of blueberries and cassis with tones of violet, coffee grounds, earth and mushroom. The medium-bodied palate is supple and juicy, with ripe yet not over-the-top fruit and a long, graphite-laced finish. There's a lot less new oak on this cuvée, and it really works! Around 1,500 cases were made.
