Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note:  The bouquet on this should be bottled or made into candles. You will have your nose in your glass from start to finish. The palate follows suit with delicious ripe dark fruits, cocoa, earthiness, and a bit of spice, with well-integrated tannin, and a great mouthfeel all the way through a long and luscious finish.

    This is stunning on the nose with crushed cassis, like creme de cassis, and violets. So beautiful to smell. Medium to full body. Compact, refined tannins flow across the palate to the borders of the wine. All about balance, freshness and purity. One of the best ever. Drink or hold.

    The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard, bottled six months ago, is very deep purple-black in color. Red roses waft sensuously, provocatively out of the glass, taking center stage until the notes of kirsch, blackberries and black raspberries come through, followed by Ceylon tea and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied, very freshly perfumed and drop-dead gorgeous in the mouth, with a firm, grainy frame and long, mineral-laced finish.
