The inaugural bottling of Turnbull Wine Cellars' new signature reflection on the world-renowned Oakville Appellation. Incredible aromatics. Powerful yet graceful, dusted summer blackberries and crème de cassis. Delicate fine-tuned French oak strikes a perfect balance, creating the counter-point to the astounding density of dark and lifted red fruit. The tannins are silky, rich and smooth, detailing the amazing singularity of the terrior of Oakville. A stunning start to a new legacy.
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville possesses a dense purple color as well as copious notes of charcoal, black currants and violets. Full-bodied and tightly knit, but trying to burst open, this beautifully pure, well-crafted Cabernet should hit its prime in 3-4 years and last for two decades. It is another brilliant effort from a winery that has dramatically improved its quality from good to world-class.
The Wine Advocate
"Rich and flashy in the way of Oakville Cabernet, this shows ripe tannin structure and perfect acidity. The blackberry, black currant and licorice flavors finish thoroughly dry, long and classy. Drink now or age for a couple years."
"This is a solid 2010 with currant, berry and spice character. Full body with juicy fruit and tannins, and a clean finish. Drink or hold."
