Turnbull Wines - Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Turnbull Wines - Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (91 TSW)
Happy Cabernet Day! The last Thursday of August marks the day to celebrate Cabernet Sauvignon and the wines it produces.
First open the wine an hour before and use a decanter. We used the openyourwine and it took 5 minutes and it started to sing.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a deep garnet red color with purple reflections.
On the medium+ nose aromas of blackberries, cranberries and blueberries with hints of cassis, coffee, violets, pepper and licorice.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied with medium tannins and acidity. Flavours of dark fruit, ceder, vanilla and tobacco. Nicely balanced and not overpowered. Will get better within 5 more years.
