Turnbull’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Ripe, bold and plummy, with bright floral overtones and succulent red berry and plum fruit, the 2017 is a positively stellar wine. Best of all, it is a screaming value by the standards of Napa Valley Cabernet. Is there a better Napa Valley Cabernet made from estate fruit for $50 a bottle? I doubt it.
There is an immediacy of pleasure with this wine. There is a voluptuous and pleasantly wide mid-palate weight with the wine. Showing beautiful balance and nice acidity, there is prominent red and dark fruit with supple tannins and an impressive freshness and length. There is a quiet structure surrounding the fruit and a gradual texture that carries through the finish.
