About The Wine
Helm is known for two things: Riesling and Cabernet.
Whle it may be the white wines that have gained Ken the most acclaim, his Cabernet in particular is absolutely worth a look.
It's a soft approachable wine, beautifully open and expressive. Given the easy drinkability of it on release, it's quite remarkable how well it develops in the cellar.
This is pitch perfect medium-bodied Cabernet. Ready to drink ASAP or in a decade plus.
