Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful expression of Napa Valley. Turnbull was founded in 1979, designed to be low-key and in tune with its environment, and it is a classic example of a small hands-on Napa Valley winery. William Turnbull once said, "You want to have an image of a winery that cares about the last drop of wine in the bottle." That tradition is carried on today. Turnbull focuses on small production expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from its four acclaimed estate vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley. Their wines are of exceptional quality and always speak to time and place.
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color, offering gregarious notes of baked black plums, licorice, crème de cassis and mocha plus nuances of tar and cardamom. The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with a compelling purity of black fruit flavors and lovely freshness, textured by soft, plush tannins, finishing long with an exhilarating pepper and spice burst. Drink 2020-2032."-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 91 points!
"The appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley would be a great buy for those looking for a terrific value in classic, impeccably made, age-worthy Cabernet under $100. Deep purple, with outstanding notes of blackcurrants, cedarwood, graphite, and leafy herbs, this medium-bodied, elegant 2018 has plenty of mid-palate depth, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. It's going to deliver loads of pleasure over the coming 15 years."-Jeb Dunnuck, 93 points!
