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 2011 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 2026
The 2011 Reserve Cabernet was made from grapes grown in four of Whitehall Lane's seven vineyard properties. It included select rows from the Leonardini Vineyard, Millennium Vineyard and Oak Glen Vineayard. The wine was aged in 80% French Oak and 20% American Oak barrels for 20 months.
