Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Napa Valley Merlot is crafted largely from our exceptional Fortuna Vineyard. Restrictive red volcanic soils yield wines that are inherently concentrated and spicy. Deep and rich in color, this wine possesses a fantastic bouquet of cherry extract, sun-ripened black berries, black tea and dried figs. In your mouth, the tannins create a rich tapestry with flavors of dark cherries, farm-ripened strawberries, toasted oak and lifted vanilla notes. A wine that finishes with remarkable length, with lingering dark fruit intensity and velvety tannins.
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.
