Connoisseurs Guide to Wine 92
"Its ample oak is always subordinate to elements of cassis and ripe cherries, and its integral tannins provide solid varietal spice without being too tough or abrasive. It overall sense of proportion and balance are just what we look for in age-worthy wines, and what is good here will get only better over the next five to ten years. Good value."

"Grown on the estate in Oakville, this is a very tannic Cabernet. Its almost old-fashioned, a dark, full-bodied wine with earthy-herbal notes and a hard, astringent finish. There are complex flavors of blackberries, mocha, licorice, allspice, cloves, violets and cedar. Could do interesting things beyond 2011."

Operating as a small, family business from the original estate winery in Oakville, the winery stands for exceptional quality and a true Napa Valley wine experience, as it should be.

Turnbull is immensely proud to own and sustainably farm from these exceptional pieces of land, since they reflect some of the best terroir the Napa Valley has to offer.
