2016 Millennium MM Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
93+ Points, Wine Advocate
This 2016 Millennium MM Vineyard is an elegant example of Cabernet Sauvignon. It begins on the nose bursting with fresh blueberries, cassis, cedar, roasted walnuts, and a touch of tobacco. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing deep and unctuous tannins alongside its intense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers rich and sweet black and blue fruits, firm tannins, baked blackberry cobbler, toasted croissant, pencil shavings and a dusty earth tone. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 15-20 years.
