95 points, Wine Advocate

This classic Cabernet Sauvignon is lavish and opulent with flavors of earthy black fruit and sweet red fruit. There is ample weight on the mid palate and the finely grained tannins give good length to the finish. The wine shows enough elegance to enjoy today  but will benefit from cellar aging 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 2010 wine was made from hand-selected grapes in two small vineyard blocks. 

THE VINTAGE

The 2010 growing season was cooler than normal in Napa Valley.  The fruit in our Millennium MM Vineyard developed slowly but amazingly, it ripened at about the same time as in previous years. That says a great deal about the vineyard, farming and consistency in our Millennium MM Vineyard. The fruit was harvested on October 19, 2010.
