Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label Napa Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big and powerful on the nose, with dark, figgy fruit, a bit of macerated herbs and a tight-grained oaky top note of vanilla and toast. Big, soft and powerful in the mouth, this is a very typical Napa Cabernet with a mid-palate full of creamy black cherry fruit, and packed with fine grained tannins along with cigar box, mocha and cedary spice notes that linger on the moderately long finish. It’s very well done but lacks some excitement for my palate. 90 points
