Wine Advocate 95
“The 2014 Merlot Fortuna Vineyard is a beautiful wine showing plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, high-quality subtle toast and licorice. The wine hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, elegant, but intense and full. The purity of fruit, the dense purple color and the 40- to 45-second finish make for an exceptional example of one of the best Merlots you are going to find in Napa.” – Robert M. Parker
Turnbull Cellars has been on a spectacular roll of quality over the last five to six years, if not longer. These are some of the most compelling wines being made in Northern California. Readers should take that to heart. By and large the Turnbull 2014s tended to perform in a slightly more backward style than many wines of the vintage, so some minimal bottle aging is suggested. However, they are all impressive wines that combine plenty of power with impressive elegance and equilibrium.
