THIS IS STILL AMAZING JUICE!

"Tight, firm and concentrated, this is well-focused on a core of earthy blackberry, currant, dried herb and cedary oak. Full-bodied and well-proportioned, with excellent structure, depth, length and persistence. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases made. " (WS)

The brilliant 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is the real deal. Incense, forest flowers, black fruits, and crushed rock, jump from the glass of this inky purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, dense, and voluptuously textured, this is a beauty, a superb bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well young but age 15-10 years. Bravo!

It’s hard to believe this winery has been in operation for 30 years, placing it among the older ones in Napa Valley. I was very impressed with their Cabernet Sauvignons, and less so with their Merlots. www.turnbullwines.com (WA)

"You can’t get Oakville Cabernet at these prices! Vineyard land in the Oakville appellation of Napa Valley, wedged between Yountville and Rutherford, costs well over $200,000/acre so it’s exceptionally rare to see an Oakville Cabernet under $50. Those that do sell under that price point are often made of remnant grapes that didn’t make the cut for other top wines. That’s why Turnbull’s 2007 Cabernet is so special. It’s Estate grown, in their Oakville vineyards, which means that the grapes are owned and grown by Turnbull and never leave the property until the wine is bottled and sent to the distributor.

This is textbook Oakville juice- rich and sweet with a round tannin on the back of the palate. This is a serious wine. Fans of Groth or Plumpjack, are going to be really impressed with the latest release from Turnbull.

That crazy contraption on the top of the bottle is the Soiree Wine Decanter Aerator (available at LA Wine Co. for $19.95). It’s made of hand blown glass and aerates the wine as it’s being poured. I think it helps to open up young wines if you don’t have time to decant for an extended amount of time. Will it make a bad wine good? Absolutely not. But it will make a good wine better. Definitely worth the $20.

The 2007 Turnbull Cabernet is drinking great right now but also has the structure for 10-15 years of aging. For the equivalent of $36 per bottle this is one of the best values going and another prime example of the magic of the 2007 vintage in Napa Valley." (Nickel & Dime)

Wine Co., at an incredible $29.95 do not let the opportunities pass you by. As soon as I poured this dark purple wine and inhaled its classic Cabernet Sauvignon bouquet I knew here was a winner, only made more obvious with its cherry laden elegance that is a hallmark of fine Napa Cabernets. I agree fully with Robert Parker when he rated this wine a 92 and wrote, “The brilliant 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is the real deal. Incense, forest flowers, black fruits, and crushed rock, jump from the glass of this inky purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, dense, and voluptuously textured, this is a beauty, a superb bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well young but age 10-15 years. Bravo!” The only thing he left out was adding the words “dark ripe cherries among the wines description.

The wine comes from five different Napa Vineyards mostly (if not entirely) in the Oakville district and all belonging to Turnbull Wine Cellars, hence the prestigious “Estate Grown” on the label. The wine is a fascinating blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Syrah (Durif) and 1% Petit Verdot. Aging occurs for 18 months entirely in French Oak.
