Helms Vineyard Cabernet displays the classic profile of the Rutherford Bench: dark fruit, richly layered with a touch of spice and earth. The finely grained "dusty" tannins so prevalent in the appellation are integrated and harmonious, producing a wine of sophistication and depth.

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard is bright, aromatic and savory. Lovely energy drives the red berry, pine, cinnamon, spicecake orange peel, mint and rose petal flavors. At times, the aromatics recall Nebbiolo. This mid- weight, lithe Cabernet has aged impeccably. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years.

Rugged and robust, with dense, chewy, extracted dark berry, crushed rock, mocha and cedary oak notes, all with ample weight. The edginess and rustic nature of the tannins remains a concern. Best from 2015 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 172 cases made.
