Top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

3. Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 10
Average price: $39.99 from 9 stores
Very fine nose with lovely herbal and savory aromas accenting the sweet baking spice nose that is slightly cool and compressed. There is lovely balance on the palate, with real richness of ripe fruit, and no baby fat which the 2007 still retains. The feeling here is cool and pretty Cabernet fruit, bringing along that suggestion of herbaceousness from the nose, as it yields to a ripe fruit-driven finish. Needs a bit of time but this has everything in the right place. 92pts

List It
  • 1041141Tiakittie Love this list!!! I'm a HUGE fan of the Duckhorn. I would also add to this list the Ghost Pines 2009 & 2010 Cabernet. This is a bit of a cheat as it is a blend of grapes from Louis Martini's Sonoma and Napa vineyards, but both vintages are light and fresh, with super fine, well integrated tannins, well-balanced acid and alcohol and yummy notes of black cherry, green pepper, toasty oak, vanilla and the lightest touch of cocoa and cassis. Interesting, fun and with just enough fruitiness to keep the fruit-bomb Cab lovers interested! A wine for everyone and highly approachable both in style and price...it sells for $20.99 here in my store in Alberta, Canada and is VERY popular (wish I could say the same for their Zinfandel)! Thanks again for yet another great article! And happy tasting! Jean
