a note on the wines
The 2013 bottling is an ethereal wine of incredible depth and purity, with enthralling aromatics and palate. It shows an astounding balance of freshness surrounded by dark power.
“This is my lifetime achievement award wine. It's the wine I'll take with me to the desert island." - Winemaker Peter Heitz
"Their most expensive wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Pierra, which comes from this rocky vineyard in Oakville. Nearly black/purple in color, the wine has a singular quality, profound concentration and compelling notes of blueberries, blackberries, crushed rock, chocolate, a touch of espresso--just a smorgasbord of aromas. This is truly one of the great 2013s and a masterpiece of winemaking and viticulture. The wine should last for 30-50 years and is another legacy wine in what is a remarkable lineup of wines from Turnbull Wine Cellars in 2013..."
Enjoy notes of crushed dark fruit on stone that thrill every sense. A transcendent vertical arc of lift & light fused against streaks of dark strain and effort. Like the first sighting of land after the endless voyage, the landfall of expression leaves a lifting sense of joy.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pierra comes from rocky soils on their estate in Oakville. This is youthful and backward with sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, licorice and earth. The wine almost seems like a barrel sample given its primary characteristics and youthfulness. Dense ruby purple, sweet fruit, ripe, well-integrated tannin and oak, this is a full-bodied wine to forget for another 5-6 years and drink over the following 25 years."
In keeping with our enduring commitment to honor this uniquely challenging terroir, 2015 Pierra weaves together a rich tapestry of nuance and depth, striking a balance between undeniable grit and exceptional purity.
"Displaying an inky purple-black color and a nose of warm red currants and red plums with a cassis and blueberry core with wafts of underbrush, moss and cedar chest, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pierra is full-bodied and very solidly structured with firm, fine-grained tannins and a lively line cutting through the youthful, pure black and red fruits, finishing on a lingering mineral note."
