Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Fortuna Napa Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky with lovely sweet tobacco accents to rich black raspberry fruit that’s topped with herbal notes and hints of chamomile. This is round, broad and open in the mouth with lovely acids, nice ripe tannins and rich fruit that is mouth filling but clear. On the finish, this fades a touch quickly but then returns with an almost raspberry red fruit tone. 92 points

Pretty mint-infused red currant and cherry fruit on the nose with nice oak and some earth. Hints of dark chocolate. Elegant aromas. Super smooth on the palate with pretty red fruit and vanilla. Currant, cassis fruit. Rich and smooth with an elegant opulence. Some cherry. More feminine in profile with a red driven, lush, floral style Cabernet. 92 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
