Turnbull Fortuna Merlot Napa Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy on the nose with well-defined toast, spice, and jammy blackberry and blackcurrant aromas framed by coffee and vanilla accents. In the mouth this is bright, juicy and transparent with lovely small blackberry fruit in a tight and finely balanced style. This is tense, with sold acids in a powerful but refined style that shows elegance and finesse on the long finish. Fine merlot. 92 points

Red cherry, currant, flowers, camphor and mint aromas. Rich, soft and pretty nose. Delicate fruit and very pretty! Rich red berry flavor with lovely floral notes. Feminine profile with a nice kiss of oak. Slight vanilla and luscious ripe red berry. Dry finish. Very nice! 93 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
