Turnbull's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Ripe, bold and plummy, with bright floral overtones and succulent red berry and plum fruit, the 2017 is a positively stellar wine. Best of all, it is a screaming value by the standards of Napa Valley Cabernet. Is there a better Napa Valley Cabernet made from estate fruit for $50 a bottle? I doubt it.

The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley sports a deep purple hue to go with a big, ripe nose of black fruits, scorched earth, crushed violets, and spring flowers. It has a core of firm tannins, the straight, focused style of the vintage, and a great finish. Cabernet at this price point can be dicey in 2017, but this is solid and well worth the money.

This producer continues to produce outstanding value for the quality in its wines, and this a shining example of the concept. Weighty, expansive tannins give in to a length of rich, rewarding blue and red fruit, the richness well tempered in acidity and a balanced use of oak.
91pts James Suckling
A lovely red for the vintage with pure, currant and berry character, medium body, round and creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the spirit of the 2017 vintage with dazzling finesse of flavor and stunning balance. Muddled ripe strawberries and boysenberries compel the nose to complex tones of creamy red cassis, spice box, and delicate herbs de Provence. Red fruit tones delight the palate, rising and falling with amplitude and grace to a brilliant finish that leaves the brain tingling and heart yearning for the next sip.
