The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota offers pretty raspberry/floral notes with a Chateau Margaux-like finesse and complexity. Medium to full-bodied with a more elegant restrained style than its younger sibling it possesses a Bordeaux-like structure beautiful fruit firm tannin and a long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.

($60; the Helena Montana is on the Peter Michael side of Knights Valley while this is on the Calistoga side where the clay soil does not warm up as quickly and a cool wind frequently blows) Medium ruby-red. Bright floral aromas of black fruits violet licorice black pepper anise and fresh herbs. Densely packed and intense with penetrating juicy cool flavors of minerals black cherry bitter chocolate and fresh herbs. This rather elegantly styled wine offers lovely flavor development. Finishes with suave fine tannins that coat the entire palate. I suspect this site needs a vintage like 2001 to reach thorough ripeness.
