Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Arnold Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon was made from select vineyards in California's Napa Valley. The heart of this cabernet sauvignon comes from Napa's Oakville appellation, with the remainder sourced from vineyards in along the Valley's eastern flank. We blended in twenty four percent Napa Valley merlot to soften the tannins of the wine, and enhance its overall complexity and balance.

The 2008 Arnold Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of plump dark plums and cherries. The flavors of the wine hint of mint while filling the mouth with raspberry candy, dark chocolate, and espresso. The finish has elements of dark fruit, integrated with an elegant tannin structure.
