Top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

3. Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Weitz Vineyard (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 10
Average price: $44.99 from 9 stores
Very fine on the nose, with an early sweet baking spice note followed by crisp blackcurrant fruit, lovely dried herb and almost floral nuances. On the palate, this is a bit reserved with a slightly cool and compressed feel, but lovely balance that shows real richness of ripe fruit. There’s no baby fat here, it’s all sleek, cool and pretty Cabernet fruit in the black cherry/blackcurrant end of the register, bringing a suggestion of herbaceousness to the moderately long finish. 91 points

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
