At 10 years of age, this wine continues to show a lot of fruit and depth. On the nose, there is black fruit, cassis, jam, and licorice. Upon tasting, there are flavors of black cherry pie, dark cranberries, tobacco leaf, bittersweet chocolate, and a touch of cedar on the finish. This Millennium MM Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has plush velvety tannins that linger for miles, adding to the outstanding depth, balance, and structure. Wonderful now and through 2025.

 

WINEMAKER NOTES

The Millennium MM Cabernet is made from grapes grown less than one-half mile from the winery, on the northern edge of the Rutherford AVA. This vineyard produces grapes that have been used in some of Napa Valley’s storied wines for the past half-century. Whitehall Lane’s Leonardini Family bought the vineyard in the Millennium year, 2000 and brought modern viticulture science to the property, improving on the already impeccable quality. This 2009 wine was made from one small vineyard block grown on Clone 4 grapevines.

THE VINTAGE

The 2009 growing season was fabulous in all of our Napa Valley vineyards. It was an uneventful summer of outstanding weather, day after day and the fruit matured slowly and evenly throughout these summer months. Fall was also ideal as the fruit ripened to perfection. The grapes in our Millennium MM Vineyard were harvested by hand on October 21, 2009.
