“Extremely floral with dried rose petal and blackberry aromas. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and caressing textured finish. Shows tension and form. Very pretty. Drink or hold.” 1/15/16


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. This wine was made from hand-selected grapes in one small vineyard block. This Rutherford Cabernet is loaded with cassis, blackberry aromas and chewy tannins that turn to a velvety finish. Enjoyable today but will benefit from cellar aging through 2032.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The aromas of dark cherry, berry and oak are captivating. On the palate the wine is exquisitely balanced with excellent fruit concentration, mouthwatering acidity and ample structure. The finish is long with lingering fruit flavors and elegant tannins. This offering is enjoyable today but will also evolve with cellar aging through 2028.

THE VINTAGE

The fruit in our Millennium MM Vineyard enjoyed the ultimate growing season in 2013. The spring weather was perfect and the summer was even better.  The grapes grew beautifully under ideal conditions and were harvested on September 9th and 11th when the fruit displayed perfect flavors and sweetness.
