The Helena Montana Vineyard 2002 vintage is a deep garnet color that veers into purple. The fruit is concentrated and bright with an initial raspberry fragrance followed by black pepper, spice and cedar. Elegant tannins and velvety mouth feel characterize this bold and complex Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of black currant, chocolate and coffee on a very long finish. Enjoyment is enhanced by decanting. - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron/Winemaker
Running northeast to southwest on the eastern side of scenic Highway 128, the Helena Montana vineyard offers ever-changing topography, including rolling hills and steep benches with slopes of up to 30 degrees. This juxtaposition of hills, knolls and trees routes cool, westerly winds away from the vines. Planting vines perpendicular to the prevailing winds provides even more protection. A pure mountain stream and rocky ridge separate this vineyard from our Helena Dakota vineyard.
