Currant, cassis and raspberry flavors highlight a lovely texture of subtle power that is inviting and brightly high-toned. Volcanic soils contribute a chalky, spicy and mineral-like component of crushed rock. - Virginie Boone

There's a final flourish of fruit at the very end. Pretty gorgeous. Best from 2022 through 2040. — J.M.

It's another balanced, impeccably made wine from this team that's well worth seeking out. It's up with some of the top values in the vintage.

Turnbull Wine Cellars

Turnbull Wine Cellars has been rooted in the culture and history of the Napa Valley for more than 35 years, operating as a small, family-owned, multi-generation business from their original estate winery in Oakville. They offer enduring Cabernet Sauvignons—elegant, structured wines crafted from their four estate vineyards throughout Oakville (Leopoldina, Fortuna, and Turnbull) and in Calistoga (Amoenus). The wines age in 100% French Oak barrels and bottle for an extended period before release. ​​​
