TURNBULL “Fortuna Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
(Oakville, Napa Valley, CA) $150
Founded in 1979 by famous California architect William Turnbull along with friend and attorney Reverdy Johnson, Turnbull Cellars is today owned by the O’Dell family (Patrick O’Dell is a newspaper publisher from northern California). Winemaker Peter Heitz (no relation to the Heitz Cellars family), is the 14th generation of his family to be in the wine business—ten in Alsace, France and another four after his ancestors immigrated to the Napa Valley. In addition to its home vineyard surrounding the winery, Turnbull also owns the fantastic Fortuna Vineyard, a landslide of rocky red volcanic soils that slipped off the hills on the east side of Oakville. Magnificently structured and powerful, yet fresh and expressive at the same time, Turnbull’s “Fortuna Vineyard” Cabernet is built to age.
