Turnbull Red Bordeaux Blend Oakville Old Bull Red 2000

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

An unusual blend that defies easy classification, this Old Bull is ldquo;full of itrdquo; mdash; 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 Bullrsquo;s tender side.

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