Inaugural Reserve Cabernet release from Turnbull. The fruit for Turnbull's 2016 Oakville Reserve bottling comes entirely from the Fortuna and Leopoldina Vineyards. Located in Eastern Oakville, these sites are situated upon the famous volcanic red soils that the Oakville appellation is known for. The Fortuna Vineyard sits proudly on the alluvial fan at the base of the Oakville bench, and contributing red fruit and spice components. The Leopoldina Vineyard, high on the bedrock ridge above the Fortuna Vineyard, highlights structure, texture, and mid-palate weight. Tasting Notes: You taste the immediate pleasure of early season summer ripe strawberries, with almost ripe blackberries and red cassis. Behind the fruit, there are hints of of toasted nuts, peppercorn and sandalwood. The palate starts with a narrow focus and then jets out with an impressive width, lending a very delicious and textural experience to the wine. You are left with an explosion of red fruit - like a million heart emojis being released in the sky.
