This wine had a nose like cherry ice-cream. You are initially hit with over-ripe razpberries, and hints of blackberry and cassis, has a nice tannic middle and a very vanilla finish. Over all at this price it's a great deal.

This is a wild blend. Seven different varietals contribute to lots of fruit up front but tons of structure and tannins as well. Very interesting and very complex.

Turnbull's Old Bull Red is a local favorite at NapaCabs. Our customers love it because it's from a big name winery, it has the perfect every-day-drinker price, and it definitely hits the delicious factor. Robert Parker gave it 88 points, praising the wine for it's "straightforward, satisfying style". The blend is predominately Merlot with a number of other varietals in the field-blend style that many vintners are working in these days. We heart this wine because of it's bright fruit character and harmoniums structure.

This artful blend achieves amazing complexity and decadent richness. With aromas of plums, berries, dried cherries and a touch of mocha, in the glass the dense dark flavors of blackberry and cocoa dominate.

Our 2009 Old Bull blends the power and richness of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%) and Cabernet Franc (6%), with the bold fruit of Syrah (24%), the enticing lighthearted red fruit and spice of Merlot (22%). This artful blend achieves amazing complexity and decadent richness while detailing the great vineyard sites and viticultural work that is at the core of all Turnbull wines. Rich with aromas of plums, berries, dried cherries and a touch of mocha, in the glass the dense dark flavors of blackberry and cocoa dominate. - Winery

Rich with aromas of plums, berries, dried cherries and a touch of mocha, in the glass the dense dark flavors of blackberry and cocoa dominate. A true blend of our estate lots, the wine has additional complexity from the rich tapestry of varietals found within. - Winery ** Only 5 in Stock **
