Winemaker Notes :

Aromatics of densely brooding blackberries—seemingly right off the vine—compel the nose into deeper aromatics of dried cassis, toasted almonds,and roasted herbs. The palate reveals a dark baritone of plumpness, highlighted by tones of plum, sage, and muddled strawberries. Through themid-palate of generous width and softness, this resonant darkness persists to a finish of focus and lasting flavor.

Turnbull's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Ripe, bold and plummy, with bright floral overtones and succulent red berry and plum fruit, the 2017 is a positively stellar wine. Best of all, it is a screaming value by the standards of Napa Valley Cabernet. Is there a better Napa Valley Cabernet made from estate fruit for $50 a bottle? I doubt it.

The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley sports a deep purple hue to go with a big, ripe nose of black fruits, scorched earth, crushed violets, and spring flowers. It has a core of firm tannins, the straight, focused style of the vintage, and a great finish. Cabernet at this price point can be dicey in 2017, but this is solid and well worth the money.

This producer continues to produce outstanding value for the quality in its wines, and this a shining example of the concept. Weighty, expansive tannins give in to a length of rich, rewarding blue and red fruit, the richness well tempered in acidity and a balanced use of oak.

A showy style, featuring a blast of soft-textured plum and blackberry puree flavors, gilded liberally with ganache and toasted vanilla notes. A bit chewy at the very end, with a plum skin feel lingering. Drink now through 2023. 9,947 cases made.

Deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notes of baked plums, black currant pastilles and dried blueberries with hints of fried herbs, cigar box and fruitcake. Full-bodied, the palate is just slightly hollow with chewy tannins and oodles of freshness pleasantly lifting the berry preserves flavors on the finish.
