TN: 2014 Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve Oakville

I'm not drinking nearly as much Napa Cabernet lately. I believe the 16 is getting released so wanted to revisit. Turnbull has some unbelievable vineyards in Oakville. Worth seeking out.
  • 2014 Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve Oakville - USA, California, Napa Valley, Oakville (9/29/2019)
    Deep and dark in the glass. The nose has black fruit with a little smokiness on the end. It has ripe blackberry and current with silky tannin and nice length on the finish. It needs some time in the decanter for a bit of the alcohol to blow off but slightly drying tannin shows up with air. The additional time adds to a long finish w some grip. This is still 2-3 years from peaking but worth trying if you have a few. A modern Napa Cab but in no way overdone or too ripe. Very good to excellent. (93 pts.)

Yes, good wines, and the pticing is pretty sane by napa standards. I have not had the 14 Reserve recently, but have been giving them some time. Maybe time to crack one. Drank a ‘13 Fortuna about a month ago which was fantastic.

Definitely worth a visit Jeff and their wine club pricing is pretty attractive for their top end bottles in comparison to others. I have yet to open one of those but they really impressed when I tasted with them 3 years ago.
