Cassis, black cherry and violet on the nose. Supple, creamy and sweet, with good inner-mouth aromatic quality to the flavors of blackberry, blueberry, licorice pastille and violet. Really berry-driven Cabernet but not especially complex. Finishes with edgy, slightly drying tannins and a hint of dark chocolate. (ST)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Turley’s first Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 The Label, is a simple, juicy wine loaded with fruit. Black cherries, chocolate, mocha, cloves and spices all jump from the glass in an up-front, fruit-driven wine meant for near-term drinking. (AG)
From 20+ year old vines in an organically farmed vineyard that recently became part of the Turley Estate in St Helena, "The Label" pays homage to old-school Napa Cabernet from the 1960s and '70s in style, but with a modern twist. The folks at Turley "jokingly refer to this wine as the 'Mini Cooper' of Cabernet: cars started out small and light, then giant gas guzzling SUVs were all the rage, and now we're slowly but surely circling back, with an updated look & methodology." Indeed, this wine's eco-friendly, minimal, flat-bottomed glass Bordeaux bottles do make the other guys' extra tall, thick-glassed, deep-punted bottles that have become the Napa standard seem so, well, extravagant...But aging in all French oak (40% new) imparts enough creaminess and toasty spice to this Cab to keep the kids (and critics) happy, and at 14.2% ABV this is plenty ripe, packed full of black and blue fruits with pretty floral notes. Balanced and inviting, this represents a refreshing take on Napa Cabernet without veering too far off course in terms of overall flavor, accessibility and appeal.
