2017 Oakville Cabernet Franc
Calling all collectors and lovers of the extraordinary and uncommon:
Our single-varietal, 100% 2017 Oakville Cabernet Franc is finally here.
Bottled only when its barrels show an otherworldly, must-share, lightning-in-a-barrel quality, this 2017 Oakville Cabernet Franc is no doubt "one of the wines of the vintage” and not-to-be-missed, in the words of our Winemaker, Peter Heitz.
Take delight in soft aromatics that transport your senses to stunning layers of roasted sage, toasted hazelnut, honeysuckle blossom, and brandied cherries. Each sip echos its aromatic beginnings as silky, balanced tannins embrace the palate with lift and freshness all the way through the gentle finish.
Only twelve barrels of this wine were bottled. Don't miss this treasure of a wine crafted with you—our Turnbull faithful—in mind.
praise for 2017 oakville cabernet franc
"The 2017 Cabernet Franc is a rich, hedonistic wine. Soaring aromatics and plush, dense fruit give the 2017 tons of pure, explosive richness. Succulent dark cherry, plum, leather, cedar, smoke and espresso are some of the many notes that soar out of the glass. Warm, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is going to be very easy to drink with minimal cellaring. This is a decidedly forward, ripe style, but it works beautifully."
