Situated atop the Oakville Bench, the Leopoldina Vineyard offers its westward-facing vines rocky, red volcanic soils and dramatic inclines – the ideal terroir for producing wines that flow with aromatic intrigue and unparalleled freshness.
This single-vineyard offering is a showcase of Leopoldina to its core, balancing an impressive body with elegant focus and restraint.
Exquisite, dark florals warm the nose to an incredibly layered bouquet of black cherry and cassis. Rich plums, blackberries, and tobacco envelop the mid palate with classic restraint and structure that is undeniably Leopoldina in quality and taste. This is a wine that knows where it comes from, as its assured sense of authenticity and place carries beautifully through its timeless finish.
Vinous 98-100 Points: “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard is the most complete of the three 2018 Cabernets I tasted at Turnbull. Vivid, nuanced and crystalline in character, the 2018 is positively dazzling. There is a sense of pure energy here that I can only describe as utterly thrilling. All three 2018 Turnbull Cabernets in this article may get better, but the Leopoldina is stunning right now.”
