Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2008 Old Bull blends the power and richness of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%) and Cabernet Franc (18%), with the bold fruit of Syrah (28%), the enticing lighthearted red fruit of Barbera (4%) and Sangiovese (1%) and finishes with the black pepper and spice of Zinfandel (4%). This artful blend achieves amazing complexity and decadent richness while detailing the great vineyard sites and viticultural work that is at the core of all Turnbull wines. Rich with aromas of plums, berries, dried cherries and a touch of mocha, in the glass the dense dark flavors of blackberry and cocoa dominate. A true blend of our estate lots the wine has additional complexity from the rich tapestry of varietals found within.

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.
