The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of grapefruit, guava, and melon. The wine exhibits bright fruit flavors balanced by a slight minerality. The wine is crisp and lively with medium body and a long lasting finish.

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.
