Winemaker Notes

This is a wine that delivers on its promise! Impressive depths of varietal character and velvety richness on the palate. Earthy aromas of cedar and peppery spice pair with the lush flavors of juicy plums and black cherries. Sweet round oak sustains the elegant spicy flavors through the lengthy finish. Pepper-crusted meat and spicy desserts are a natural combination. The blend is 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.

Turnbull, Napa Valley, California
1997 Merlot
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.
