2011 Millennium MM Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L
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.
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.
