2018 Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1496372 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a blockbuster of a wine, especially at the price, opening in violet aromas and moderate grip. Beautiful black- and red-cherry, currant and baking-spice elements combine around a core of classic elegance and length, finishing in cigar box. The fruit is from four estate sites. Consider buying caseloads. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

Outer quote mark The appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley would be a great buy for those looking for a terrific value in classic, impeccably made, age-worthy Cabernet under $100. Deep purple, with oustanding notes of blackcurrants, cedarwood, graphite, and leafy herbs, this medium-bodied, elegant 2018 has plenty of mid-palate depth, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. It's going to deliver loads of pleasure over the coming 15 years. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

Made from all estate fruit from the Fortuna, Leopoldina, and Amoenus Vineyards, this Napa Valley Cab is a great introduction to the Turnbull Winery. Robert Parker noted that "These are some of the most compelling wines being made in Northern California. Readers should take that to heart."

Year in and year out, this is probably the finest value in Napa Cabernet. Jeb Dunnck calls it "a terrific value in classic, impeccably made, age-worthy Cabernet under $100." Under $100!? How about $40 on the nose! This big, muscular, powerful Cab comes entirely from Turnbull's three estate vineyards in Oakville, and one estate planting in Calistoga. Yep, 95 point, 100% estate grown, predominantly Oakville (70%) Cabernet for $40. It's unbeatable. Chockfull of blackberry, cassis, scorched earth, new leather, and briary notes. Beautifully ripe fruit encases and solid core of gravelly mineral notes and firm yet fine tannin. Exotic oak tones are woven throughout but never overpower the purity of fruit. Quite focused and taught, in the style of the vintage, this is no doubt only going to get better and better for the next 5-10 years and likely see 20 years of age without faltering. It's a remarkable bottle of wine that shows both the strength of the 2018 vintage and the pedigree of the producer. It allows you to drink top quality, estate grown Napa Cab without breaking the bank. Simply put, there are very few, if any, wines more worthy of your money than this.
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2040
