Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
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.
This wine offers remarkable value for the quality—a stellar commingling of cranberry, cassis and black cherry. With a robust mouthfeel of plump juicy fruit, gun smoke and firm tannin, it shows integrated oak flavors and plenty of underlying acidity to remain fresh in the glass. Editors’ Choice.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve features vibrant blackcurrants, black cherries and redcurrants scents with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead, lavender and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly crafted with plush tannins and bags of black and red fruit layers, finishing on a savory note.
Redcurrants and red plums with a swathe of fresh, violet-like florals, leading to a palate that has a neat core of blueberry flavor and a succulent, juicy and long, fresh finish. The fruit persistence is impressive here. Drink or hold.
This offers a mix of bold plum, blackberry, sassafras, anise and licorice snap notes, all backed by a solid brambly spine. Displays some toast along the edges, but this easily pushes the fruit to the fore in the end. Drink now through 2027. 8,000 cases made.
