Turnbull Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750ml
Bold aromas of dusted blackberries and toasted Bermuda Cedar surrender to tertiary tones of bright cherry compote, transporting your senses to broad brushstrokes of the darkly brooding fruit to come. On the palate, ripe black and red berries pirouette in flashes, building momentum through pixilated tannins to reveal textural finesse and freshness that persists all the way through the dynamic finish.
The fruit for this Oakville Reserve bottling comes entirely from the Fortuna and Leopoldina Vineyards. Located in Eastern Oakville, these sites are situated upon the famous volcanic red soils that the Oakville appellation is known for. The Fortuna Vineyard sits proudly on the alluvial fan at the base of the Oakville bench, and contributing red fruit and spice components. The Leopoldina Vineyard, high on the bedrock ridge above the Fortuna Vineyard, highlights structure, texture, and mid-palate weight.
This bottling is an exemplary ode to the renowned appellation of Oakville, and the very first of our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon releases. Don't miss your chance to enjoy this extraordinary wine of time and place.
