    About Anakota

    Even those with only a passing interest in the mighty cult wines of Napa Valley will likely be familiar with the legendary Verité. A name famous far and wide as a pioneering estate within North America’s most important fine wine region, displaying a kaleidoscopic range of fabulous characteristics coaxed from Cabernet Sauvignon amongst their range of cuvées.

    Tucked away as a special project of the very same winemaker, Bordeaux native Pierre Seillan, there is another name which, we suspect, is simply waiting to join its sibling as one of the most renowned estates in Napa.

    “Bordelais winemaker Pierre Seillan, who makes these wines for the Kendall-Jackson empire, believes that this micro-terroir has exceptional potential... These are relatively big wines, but every year that I have tasted them, Seillan has fine-tuned the tannins so that they are abundant but sweeter and much better integrated” Robert M. Parker Jr.

    Perched as a not inconsiderable 750 meters above sea level, the Helena Dakota vineyard is a sloping 12 acre parcel of what Pierre Seillan believes to be some of the most exciting terroir in Napa at the moment. Giving rise to wines of undeniable power balanced with sophistication, its soft, reddish brown silt and gravel soils benefit from the cooling effects of both their altitude and prevailing winds from the West Coast. Whilst these are, of course, utterly unique wines, the Bordelais in Seillan cannot help but draw comparisons, and he considers Helena Dakota to bear a resemblance to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Pauillac or even St- Estèphe.

    Anakota Helena Dakota Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (97)

    Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard has a compelling savoriness of char-grilled meat and roasted nuts on the nose with a core of crème de cassis, violets and crushed plums plus a touch of garrigue. Medium-bodied and tautly structured with firm, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, it has a incredible depth of primary fruit and earthy layers, finishing with incredible length and a lovely mineral hint. 432 cases produced.

    Anakota Helena Dakota Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (99)

    Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard was aged for 12 months in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a profound yet slightly broody nose to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal wonderfully fragrant notes of wild blueberries, black cherries, dark chocolate and warm cassis, followed by nuances of garrigue, violets, tar and licorice plus a touch of wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has gorgeous velvety tannins and finely knit freshness supporting generous black and blue fruits, finishing very long and achingly fragrant. Wow. 1,000 cases were made.
