95 points "Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95+ Points: "Readers looking for slightly more structure and a Mouton Rothschild-like nose of creme de cassis, licorice, black currants, cedar, and a hint of bay leaf should check out the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota. The fruit for this full-bodied, powerful Cabernet was harvested ten days later than that of the Helena Montana. The tannic, impressively endowed, full-bodied Helena Dakota is clearly meant for true connoisseurs with cold cellars as well as the patience to wait 5-6 years for it to evolve. It is a 25- to 30-year wine ... at the minimum." -Robert Parker (02/10) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - 92+ Points: "(14.8% alcohol) Saturated bright ruby. Aromas of cassis, violet, licorice and menthol, plus a whiff of cocoa powder. Sweet and chewy but with lovely aromatic lift to the black fruit, brown spice and floral flavors. At once structured and silky, powerful and stylish. Finishes with firm tannins and noteworthy verve. From a vineyard planted at an elevation of 750 feet. The gravelly silt and loam soil here is a bit less firm than the sandy gravelly loam (volcanic ash) used to make the Helena Montana wine. 92(+?) points." -Stephen Tanzer (May/June 2009) " Best 2020-2036
