Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This is a blockbuster of a wine, especially at the price, opening with a violet aroma on the nose and a moderately grippy texture on the palate. Beautiful black- and red-cherry, currant and baking-spice elements combine around a core of classic elegance and length, finishing on a cigar box accent. 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.

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. 15,000 cases made. — JM
