Winery Notes
 “100% Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is a story of two alter egos coming together: Leopoldina Vineyard meets Fortuna Vineyard. The core of Black Label comes from our Leopoldina Vineyard, perched high atop the Oakville Bench. This vineyard delivers big, darkly brooding fruit notes and rich, hedonistic tones with well-defined structure and texture. Our Fortuna Vineyard, situated upon the Eastern Oakville alluvial fan, contributes a classic spice-box note, and highlights lift and focus, enhancing length and purity.”
97+ Points Jeb Dunnuck – “Stunning stuff, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label offers a full-bodied, deep, majestic style as well as beautiful aromatics of creme de cassis, violets, flowers, and nicely integrated background oak. It has ultra-fine tannins, flawless balance, and a regal, age-worthy style that has so much to love.”
97 Points International Wine Review – “The 2021 Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon from Turnbull is composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was sourced from Fortuna (66%) and Leopoldina (34%). This immediately begins to impress as it reveals beautiful aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries and hints of blueberries, which are woven together with exotic spices, violets, dusty gravel and hints of dark chocolate that all emerge from the glass. On the palate this offers a wonderful full-bodied texture, with a well-structured frame supported by beautifully polished tannins. It possesses wonderful concentration and depth, along with excellent freshness through the opulent finish. This is a simply fabulous release from Turnbull that is excellent today, but also shows promise for a wonderful evolution ahead.”
96+ Points The Wine Independent – “The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is deep garnet-purple in color. Notes of warm cassis, stewed plums, and Morello cherries soar from the glass with sparks of baking spices and mint tea. Full-bodied, rich, and plush, the mouth is coated with juicy black fruits and the finish is satisfyingly spicy.”
96 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “The 2021 Black Label is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, drawn from the Fortuna (66%) and Leopoldina (34%) vineyards. A best-barrel selection, it offers up classic Oakville scents of black cherries and loamy earth, with a gentle cassis undertone. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with a long, velvety finish, this is a solid wine, with as much as two decades of age-ability.”
 
96 Points Antonio Galloni – “A blend of top lots from both Fortuna and Weitz, the 2021Black Label is a powerful, dense wine with imposing fruit and equally strong tannic clout. Blackberry jam, graphite, leather, bittersweet chocolate, sweet spice and licorice infuse the palate with tons of depth. The 2021 is a big, ample wine built on textural voluptuousness and sheer power.”
