Dark rich and extracted this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a 'sweetness' and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine.
Over the last several vintages, Turnbull has impressed with its very well-made and comparatively affordable Cabernets. It hits the very same marks once again in 2006, and wins applause for its deep fruit, fine focus and classic structure. Its ample oak is always subordinate to elements of cassis and ripe cherries, and its integral tannins provide solid varietal spice without being too tough or abrasive. It overall sense of proportion and balance are just what we look for in ageworthy wines, and what is good here will get only better over the next five to ten years.
Grown on the estate in Oakville, this is a very tannic Cabernet. It's almost old-fashioned, a dark, full-bodied wine with earthy-herbal notes and a hard, astringent finish. There are complex flavors of blackberries, mocha, licorice, allspice, cloves, violets and cedar. Could do interesting things beyond 2011.
