Turnbull Wine Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon California Red Wine 750 mL
Winemaker Notes & Scores 2020 vintage
Notes of Bing cherries, blackberries, and spicy red currants draw the nose to deeper tones of black figs, dark chocolate, cedar, and sage. The palate satisfies aromatic promises, as deftly balanced tannins highlight impressive acid lift, freshness, and tension while boasting richness and roundness through the finish.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec

“Some dried-herb character to the baked blackberries and graphite on the nose. Rich, smooth and flavorful on the palate, swathed by dark cherries, cassis and firm yet juicy and polished tannins. Drink or hold.” James Suckling

“Lots of plums, darker fruits, chocolate, and incense notes emerge from the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, a dense, sweetly fruited, pleasure-bent 2020 that’s already drinking nicely. It should keep for 8-10 years and should certainly put a smile on your face.” Jeb Dunnuck
About the Winery
Johnson- Turnbull was founded in 1979 designed to be low-key and in tune with its environment, and is a classic example of a small hands-on Napa Valley winery. William Turnbull once said, “You want to have an image of a winery that cares about the last drop of wine in the bottle.” That tradition is carried on today.
In the Spring of 1993 California publisher, Patrick O’Dell, purchased Johnson Turnbull Vineyards and renamed the property Turnbull Wine Cellars. The remodeling and expansion of the facility has been completed. In addition, the wines have gone through change due to the inclusion of fruit from additional vineyards purchased by Patrick. Turnbull Wine Cellars has 145 acres of vineyards within the Oakville and Calistoga districts of Napa Valley representing a diverse range of microclimates and terroirs within these fabled grape-growing centers of Napa Valley.
