    Crafted under the expertise of winemaker Peter Heitz, Turnbull’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 stands as a testament to the exceptional quality of Oakville terroir. This wine has received critical acclaims, including a remarkable 96 points from Antonio Galloni, who describes it as a “total pleasure bomb” that overdelivers for its price.

    In the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon displays a deep, purple-black color, hinting at the richness within. The nose is greeted with expressive blackcurrant cordial, mocha, and baked plums, leading to subtle hints of sauted herbs, charcoal, and tree bark. On the palate, the wine unfolds with layers of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, and cassis, complemented by a touch of pencil lead and wood spice.

    The structure is firm, built, and focused, showcasing the excellence of the Oakville AVA. The blend of the Fortuna and Leopoldina Vineyards contributes to an alluring smoky quality with hints of sandalwood and charcoal. Lush blueberry flavors lead to a captivating finish, featuring upheaved earth, fresh sage, and chocolate-covered cherries.

With a plush and polished texture, the wine offers a balanced interplay of richly layered red fruit, tamed acidity, and supportive oak.

    “This is an outstanding value for the quality: well made and balanced in ripeness and approach. Soft richly layered red fruit is met by a breadth and length of tamed acidity and tannin, the oak supportive but never in the way.” – Virginie Boone, January 2020

    Wine Advocate
    “Deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve opens with expressive blackcurrant cordial, mocha and baked plums notes leading to hints of sautéed herbs, charcoal and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has firm, chewy tannins and takes a little dip in the middle before emerging to finish on an earthy note.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2019

    Jeb Dunnuck
    “There are around 1,000 cases of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve, a complex, complete wine with lots of blue and black fruits, unsmoked tobacco, new leather, and damp earth aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, it has the firm, present tannins of the vintage yet solid ripeness, purity, and length.” – Jeb Dunnuck, January 2020
    JS 90
    James Suckling
    “A soft, fruity red with aromas and flavors of currants, berries, light chocolate and some walnuts. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Very enjoyable now.” – James Suckling, February 2020
    VIN 96
    “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve is another dazzling wine that overdelivers for its price point. Rich and sumptuous, the 2017 possesses off-the-charts richness and intensity. Black cherry, plum, new leather, licorice, spice and cedar are all fused together in this dazzling, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon; all the elements meld together in an effortless, flamboyant wine. This is a total pleasure bomb - for its quality and price, there is no question: the Reserve is the wine to buy at Turnbull.”

    Wine & Spirits
    Delicious, compelling; a compelling wine of its region; a delicious, finessed expression of place “Year’s Best US Cabernet and Blends” “This heady cabernet is massive and smooth. Whitney Asher of Brava in Lenox, Mass., described it as ‘nimble—as in, an-elephant-dancing-on-a-ball nimble.’ It’s a big wine, built for a steakhouse.” – Josh Greene, December 2020
