2016 Turnbull "Black Label" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1396189 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A big, huge wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label shows the more exotic personality of the year. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, new leather, licorice and sweet spice notes build as this flamboyantly ripe wine shows off its personality. Readers should expect a full throttle, intense wine built on pure power. Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, new leather and new oak gain volume in this striking, explosive wine from Turnbull. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a head-turning wine, especially at the price—an impressive study in cohesive elements of black currant, lavender and licorice melded with meaty, lengthy tannin. The black currant gives way to more sumptuous flavors of blueberry and cocoa powder, offering balanced body weight and complexity. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The most expensive of the three releases I was able to taste, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is bigger, richer wine and reveals an inky purple color, fresh yet perfumed notes of blueberries, violets, crushed rock, and graphite, full body, and a focused, tight, streamlined texture that's going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age. It has thrilling purity of fruit and is a long, elegant, seriously impressive bottle. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label opens with a beautiful perfume of red roses, black tea, menthol and fragrant earth scents over a core of cassis, warm plums and kirsch plus wafts of cedar and truffles. The palate is medium to full-bodied with exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness lifting the bright, vivacious fruit layers to a long, perfumed finish.

Turnbull's 2016 vintage of Black Label tastes like it belongs with the rest of the super fine high end Napa cabs $300 and up, but is a steal at $150. Sourced from two of Turnbull's most credible and iconic vineyards, the 2016 bottling posses a heavy earthy black currant character backed by leather, herbs, and spices. This is easily one of my favorite 2016 cabernets to come from Napa, and you'd surely be disappointed if you don't get your hands on this one.
