"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."

“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.”

“Juicy and forward, with enticing plum, boysenberry and plum compote flavors. Light licorice threads stitch up the finish, along with a flash of sweet spice. Drink now through 2027.”

“Softer and pleasantly vegetal on the nose, Turnbull’s entry-Cabernet is perennially one of the great value propositions in the Napa Valley. Its nose is floral and displays a bevy of dark fruit character with no overt new oak usage. Finishes crisp, satisfying and refreshing. It’s hard to ask for more at this price. Drinking Window 2024 - 2035”

“A rich, layered red with berries, some walnuts and spice. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins now. Needs time to soften. Try after 2023.”
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 points
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color, offering gregarious notes of baked black plums, licorice, crème de cassis and mocha plus nuances of tar and cardamom. The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with a compelling purity of black fruit flavors and lovely freshness, textured by soft, plush tannins, finishing long with an exhilarating pepper and spice burst.”
A slew of critical acclaim on this Napa classic -- FREE SHIPPING on 3! Wow!
Turnbull is one of those Napa Valley wineries that people don’t talk about -- they don’t want the secret getting out and having it become too expensive or too hard to find! Located in the north end of Oakville, just south of Rutherford, Turnbull has been making wine of exceptional quality since 1979 with estate-grown fruit, carefully tended to from the ground up through to the winery. Turnbull wines are crafted with integrity and without compromise, and are truly at the top of their game in the last few years, honing their craft and focusing their efforts. The 2017s are a huge success and we are one of the first to get the plush, fruit-driven ‘18s! Don’t miss!
