2015 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon
Situated atop the Oakville Bench, the Leopoldina Vinyard offers its westward-facing vines rocky, red volcanic soils and dramatic inclines - the ideal terroir for producing wines that flow with aromatic intrigue and unparalleled freshness.
This 2015 Single Vineyard offering is a showcase of Leopoldina to its core, balancing impressive body with elegant focus and sinew.
Angular and complex aromatics draw the nose into an abyss of dark fruit and leathery sinew. The aromatic intrigue is only magnified on the palate, as boysenberries and muddled, sun-ripened strawberries are incorporated within a rousing body of incredible width. Vigorous height adds to a structural velocity that endures through the finish.
Only 200 cases exist in our cellar - don't miss this opportunity to indulge your curiosity and explore this stunning thumbprint of place.
praise for 2015 leopoldina cabernet sauvignon
"...The open, radiant personality of this site in the eastern hills of Oakville comes through loud and clear. There is so much to like in this sensual, inviting Cabernet from Turnbull. Super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, cedar, espresso and foral notes give the wine a very distinctive aromatic signature that plays off the intense fruit very nicely."
"...fresh blackcurrants and blackberries with hints of dried Provence herbs, black soil and garrigue plus a waft of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, taut and muscular in the mouth, the densely packed fruit has a firm foundation of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing with great purity."
