Turnbull Wine Cellars

The 2003 Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shines with beautiful deep dark red color in the glass. From looking at it I for some reason get the feeling that this is going to be a jammy, perhaps a little bit overly fruity cab, but sometimes looks can be deceiving. Putting your nose in the glass black currants and dark cherry great you. In the mouth it shows black currant with cherry and black berries, plus a touch of cranberry, with long tannins on the finish.
This wine definitely had more tannins than I originally expected. It is fruity, but not a sweet, lush fruit, instead a bit tart. It is very drinkable right now but I think it will be even more enjoyable in a couple of years. I am looking forward to revisit this wine in the future to see how it evolves.
Rated 92 by Wine Enthusiast. Find it at from $32.99
