"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Turley Estate Vineyard (15% alcohol) has an inky ruby/purple color, beautiful, sweet crème de cassis fruit, a touch of toasty oak and spice, full-bodied opulence, and impressive purity. The fruit quality and overall character and personality shine more clearly and brightly in this wine than in the Howell Mountain cuvée. This should drink well for 12-15 years and seems the most forward and approachable of the three Cabernet Sauvignons." –April 2016
"Surprisingly open for the vintage, the Cabernet Sauvignon Turley Estate is a rare 2013 that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather all hit the palate in a bold, straightforward wine with good overall intensity, but not quite the pedigree of the other Cabernets in the lineup. -AG"
