winemaker peter heitz on black label
“Black Label is a story of two alter egos coming together: Leopoldina Vineyard fruit meets Fortuna Vineyard fruit. The core of our Black Label comes from Leopoldina Vineyard; that’s where we get that big, darkly brooding fruit note with rich, hedonistic tones, and huge structure and texture. Then, we add fruit from Fortuna Vineyard to bring in more lift and focus, making the wine prettier and longer. These are two fantastic, but different vineyard sites. And the beauty in their differences is wonderfully highlighted by this wine.”
praise for 2016 black label
"A big, huge wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label shows the more exotic personality of the year. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, new leather, licorice and sweet spice notes build as this flamboyantly ripe wine shows off its personality. Readers should expect a full throttle, intense wine built on pure power. Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, new leather and new oak gain volume in this striking, explosive wine from Turnbull."
"This is a head-turning wine, especially at the price—an impressive study in cohesive elements of black currant, lavender and licorice melded with meaty, lengthy tannin. The black currant gives way to more sumptuous flavors of blueberry and cocoa powder, offering balanced body weight and complexity."
