Winemaker's Notes:

Year in and year out, one of Napa Valley's most respected Cabs, offering both pedigree and tremendous value. With the release of vintage 2001, we celebrate the inclusion of fruit from our new vineyard in Calistoga.

Situated at the extreme north end of the Napa Valley and nestled against the western hills, the moderating influence of cooler air from the neighboring Russian River Valley allows these grapes to ripen slowly and fully. Turning heads wherever it goes.

Estate Vineyard Sources:
92% Estate Grown, Oakville, Napa Valley;
8% Turnbull owned and farmed vineyards, Calistoga, Napa Valley

My Notes:

About Turnbull Wine Cellars:

In the Spring of 1993 California publisher, Patrick O'Dell, purchased Johnson Turnbull Vineyards and renamed the property Turnbull Wine Cellars. The remodeling and expansion of the facility has been completed. In addition, the wines have gone through change due to the inclusion of fruit from additional vineyards purchased by Patrick. Turnbull Wine Cellars has 145 acres of vineyards within the Oakville Viticultural Appellation representing the diverse range of microclimates and terroirs within this fabled grape-growing center of Napa Valley.
