"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits an unmistakable minerality with a volcanic rock/burning ember/scorched earth component to its beautifully pure black currant fruit. Full-bodied, powerful and muscular with a boatload of tannin as well as fabulous concentration, this may turn out to be one of the longest lived wines ever made from Knightís Valley. Give it 3-4 more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25 years. The brilliant winemaker who has propelled one of Jess Jacksonís flagship wineries, Verite in Sonoma, to the pinnacle of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Pierre Seillan, is also behind these offerings from high elevation vineyards in Knightís Valley. Both are textbook 2007s possessing flamboyant, ripe, expressive personalities with plenty of structure and power. Like Seilanís Verite offerings (which will be reviewed in the February, 2011 issue), they will be very long lived in the style of great Bordeaux." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
