2019 Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
“when people often ask me for my recommendation on the bottle of turnbull they should buy…my answer is almost always ‘the oakville reserve cabernet sauvignon.’ the 2019 vintage showcases such astounding depth of quality, it couldn’t be more true.” – peter heitz, winemaker
Lifted and fresh red berries sweep upward with buoyancy, bringing forth darker layers of crème de cassis, camphor, and black cherries—all wonderfully nestled in a sublime and subtle French Oak infusion. The precision and sheer power of the 2019 Vintage is on wonderful parade here. Silky tannins, glorious depth of fruit, and racing dynamic tension fulfill the finish in a way that captures all the initial thrill (and then some).
praise for 2019 oakville reserve cabernet sauvignon
“Delivers a lovely burst of pure, unadulterated cassis and cherry puree, with hints of violet, singed vanilla, loam and anise. A subtly inlaid graphite spine carries the finish. Beautifully proportioned. Accessible now, but there's no rush at all. Drink now through 2036.”
—James Molesworth, Wine Spectator. 95 Points.
“A killer value that’s up with the best at the price point, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve offers medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of currants, plums, chocolate, iron, and a touch of tobacco. Nicely concentrated, beautifully balanced, and elegant, it’s a terrific wine well worth seeking out.”
“This wine shows crushed blueberries and fresh violets with notes of dried herbs, pinewood and graphite. Full-bodied and tight with chewy tannins and delicious blue fruit on the palate. Juicy and succulent, yet it needs some time to soften more. Long finish with hints of crushed stones. Try in 2024.”
