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.

 

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 2013 wine was made from hand-selected grapes in one small vineyard block.

 

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.
