“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.”

Winemaker’s Notes - Jason Moulton
“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 aromas of dark cherry, berry and oak are captivating. On the palate, the wine is exquisitely balanced with excellent fruit concentration, mouth-watering 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.”
