Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Block 9 Napa Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Super pure blackcurrant fruits explode on the nose with hints of fine herbs, earth, licorice and a touch of burnt brownie. This is a powerful wine, and yet at the same time it has a lean, focused quality to it that makes me think of a little of Margaux. On entry, one finds jammy strawberry fruit, then real finesse on the mid-palate followed by huge follow through, with elegant and pure black fruit, blackcurrants on the finish, and a lingering hint of violets. This was a sneak peak at a possible future release, and a gorgeous one at that. 94 points
