2012 Millennium MM Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
BLEND: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
93 points-James Suckling
“Pretty aromas of flowers and ripe fruits follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a lovely dark chocolate, currant and stone finish. Better in 2019.” 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, black berry aromas and chewy tannins that turn to a velvety finish. Enjoyable today but will benefit from cellar aging through 2030.

This 2012 Cabernet is a classic. The aromas of dark cherry, berry and oak leap from the glass. On the palate the wine is exquisitely balanced with excellent fruit concentration and mouth-watering acidity.The finish is long with good firm tannins and lingering fruit flavors. This offering is enjoyable today but will also evolve with cellar aging through 2026.
