Turnbull Old Bull 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

You won't be disappointed by this decadent, unique red from Turnbull Wine Cellars. It's 44% Merlot, with the rest a field blend of Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Barbera and Syrah. Lush and powerful, with a complex mix of bright and dark fruits, cinnamon, anise and toasty oak.

This was charming, just lovely, with smooth and savory fruit. A blend of mostly Merlot, Tempranillo and Sangiovese with some Cab and Cab Franc thrown in. Outstanding value you must buy. Small production; only 4,000 cases

An unusual blend that defies easy classification, this Old Bull is "full of it" - 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Sangiovese, 8% Tempranillo, 5% Primitivo and Petite Sirah, and 4% Nebbiolo. Every drop 100% estate-grown Napa juice. Tamed for 16 months in barrel, this fellow is broad-shouldered but behaved, with spicy plum and cherry flavors and a smooth, expansive texture that reveals this Bull's tender side.

A big rich, flavorful wine that offers thunderous, spicy blueberry and peppermint aromas and flavors. No bull!
