2016 Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
From The Winery:
Turnbull is rooted in the culture and history of the Napa Valley, making wine of exceptional quality in Oakville since 1979. At the core of our multi- generational, family-owned business is our estate- grown fruit, which we carefully tend to from dirt to bottle. We craft our wines with integrity and without compromise, and our signature is a wine defined by consistency of balance, structure, and depth.
Remembered for its early start, and celebrated for the ideal weather conditions that persisted throughout, 2016 marks another exceptional vintage for the Napa Valley. Wrapping up just before the Valley’s first significant fall rainstorm on October 14th, the 2016 growing season experienced a series of warm days toward the end of summer, allowing our vineyards to come into perfect ripeness. The resulting wines display an incredible density of depth and flavor, while maintaining a rare sense of verve and focus – qualities we don’t always see with a mid-palate of such resonance.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Savory herb, blood orange, mint and floral notes bring an extra kick of freshness to the red and purplish berry fruit. Medium in body and absolutely impeccable in its balance, the straight Napa Valley Cabernet has a ton to offer. The core of this wine is Turnbull's Amoenus property in Calistoga, complemented with dollops of fruit from Fortuna and Weitz, both in Oakville.

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...
Dusted red and black fruit tones coalesce into a wide expanse of detailed vibrancy. A symbiotic unfolding of raspberry reduction, Rainier cherry, and toasted bread segue into a fresh, brilliantly structured finish. Truly symphonic in its progression of flavor.
