2013 Turnbull "Oakville" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1245943 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Turnbull's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, their least expensive wine in the portfolio is the most forward and precocious of the cuvées and shows what great winemaking and vineyard sources the Turnbulls are dealing with. The color is opaque purple, the wine shows slightly less tannins than its counterparts, with gorgeously intense blueberry and blackberry fruit, cedar wood, forest floor and spice box. It's full-bodied, opulent, rich and, while still young with a good 10 years of upside, this wine will still be drinking great 20 years from now. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A larger offering from the producer from a selection of sites, this shows a prowess of blending in its grippy, classic elements of black pepper and currant, a focused display of savory edges around elusive fruit that makes for a compelling experience. Drink now through 2023. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of blackberry, black cherry and lavender aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, lots of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Juicy wine. A big and muscular style but a freshness and savoriness makes it thoroughly enjoyable. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Turnbull grows this wine at two estate vineyards in eastern Oakville, Leopoldina in the hills, and Fortuna on the valley floor. This 2013 is a plump cabernet, with plenty of sweet strawberry and dark cherry flavors to juice up the buzz of its alcohol. The sweetness of the fruit combines with the bristle of tannins to present a soft, round red. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

Big, powerful and extracted, this new vintage of Turnbull Oakville is just a blockbuster of a wine. Dripping with rich, gooey liquored cassis and kirsch fruit, this has all the forward intensity that one could want. With softness at the edges of the dense, tarry, olive, mocha and fresh mint found on the mid-palate, this is a huge mouthful of wine. Enjoyable in its baby fat now and fully formed to last well over a decade, this is deftly done and rare in its simultaneous richness and balance. Turnbull has been on a great run lately and this wine continues to push them into rarefied air in Napa.
