95 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "From a pair of vineyards in the appellation, this wine is earthy in tobacco, sage and black currant. With admirable length and breadth, it features rich berry fruit adorned in a touch of molasses, dried herb and oak, deliciously built for the long haul. Enjoy best from 2029 to 2039. (May 2022)"
93 points James Suckling: "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. (12/5/21)"
92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve is packed with black cherry, plum, spice, new leather and licorice. Soft curves and plush fruit give the 2019 its succulent, resonant personality. This generous, plush Oakville Cabernet from Turnbull is a winner. Give it a year or two in bottle first. Drink: 2024-2034. (Jan 2022)"
Producer notes: "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)."
