Year in and year out, one of Napa Valley's most respected Cabs, offering both pedigree and tremendous value. Harvested in its entirety from Turnbull owned and farmed vineyards, this is the genuine article: a blend of hillside, benchland and valley floor fruit that offers age-worthy concentration and the utmost in drinkability. A single-minded determination to be vigilant in the care of each vine and to ferment only fully ripened berries results in sweet unctuous flavor and this wine's ability to refresh with impeccable balance. Turning heads wherever it goes!
"Real expectation and excitement are raised by this well-made youngster's concentrated aromas of cassis, smoke, mint, dark soils and dried cherries, and its expansive, deeply-filled flavors fully live up to promise. Already praiseworthy both for its real range of character, its luscious fruit and for the way its many pieces fit together, the wine is solidly structured and shows no shortage of youthfully gruff tannin. It is built to get better for a number of years, and it comes with a recommendation for five to eight years of cellaring."
