2019 Anakota Cabernet Sauvignon, KV, Knights Valley, Sonoma County
Wine Advocate: 94 Points The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley, blended with 3% Petit Verdot, has a deep ruby-purple color and alluring aromas of black cherries, blueberries, thyme, aniseed and violet with touches of tobacco leaves and cedar. The medium-bodied palate has smooth, finely grained tannins and bright acidity, finishing long and floral. Its new French oak is integrating gracefully, and its bright, aromatic character makes this ideal for early drinking. 1,641 cases produced.
James Suckling: 95 Points Bright pure-grape character with citrus and blackberry aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine and fresh tannins with lemony and stony undertones. White volcanic-stone minerality. A new second wine from Anakota. Drink or hold.
