Turnbull Cellars Cabernet “Oakville” 2013

turnbull-cellars-cabernet-oakville$71.99 750 ML

“Aromatics of bing cherries, dusted, farm-ripe strawberries, red cassis and dark olive. There’s a rich, dense, dark fruit core, with lifted floral and earth tones. Plush dark fruit defines the forefront. Dark berries and cherries flow forth, creating a nice mid-palate density. Dark fruits, spicebox, tobacco, dark chocolate tones fill out the finish. Rich and hedonistic.” -Turnbull Winery

“Turnbull’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, their least expensive wine in the portfolio is the most forward and precocious of the cuvées and shows what great winemaking and vineyard sources the Turnbulls are dealing with. The color is opaque purple, the wine shows slightly less tannins than its counterparts, with gorgeously intense blueberry and blackberry fruit, cedar wood, forest floor and spice box. It’s full-bodied, opulent, rich and, while still young with a good 10 years of upside, this wine will still be drinking great 20 years from now.” -Wine Advocate

“Love the aromas of crush blackberries, black currants and black tobacco. Full body, integrated and rich tannins, and a flavorful finish. Rich yet tensioned. Better in 2018 but so delicious now.” -James Suckling

“A larger offering from the producer from a selection of sites, this shows a prowess of blending in its grippy, classic elements of black pepper and currant, a focused display of savory edges around elusive fruit that makes for a compelling experience. Drink now through 2023. Cellar Selection.” -Wine Enthusiast
