Winemaker's Notes:

Private Reserve 2009 is a lovely garnet color. Aromas of black fruit, including blackberry and black currant, are well layered with notes of vanilla and aniseed. Complex flavor intensity, it shows a wonderful varietal expression. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, plums and blueberry, with hints of vanilla and spicy nutmeg. Very lush texture, with velvety tannins.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 5% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec

About Jack Nicklaus:

Jack Nicklaus Wines, a line of handcrafted, limited-production wines from California's famed Napa Valley is a partnership between Terlato Wines and golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his family.  The Nicklaus and Terlato families share a lifelong pursuit of excellence and achievement in their respective fields—as well as a deep appreciation for the land, whether creating memorable golf courses from stunning terrain, or growing grapes in exceptional vineyard soils. When Nicklaus, a long-time wine collector, sought to create a signature wine, he and his family looked for a partner who held high standards consistent with their own. Nicklaus and his sons, Jack II and Gary, visited the Terlato-owned vineyards in California to meet with TWI Chairman and Founder Anthony Terlato and his sons, Bill and John. They toured the Terlato-owned Chimney Rock and Rutherford Hill wineries, and what emerged from two extraordinary days in Napa Valley was a friendship and two fabulous new wines. No name is more synonymous with greatness in the sport of golf than Jack Nicklaus. He has defined the sport of golf for six decades as the most prolific champion, designer, philanthropist and goodwill ambassador. With Jack Nicklaus wines, he has brought this commitment and passion to his private hobby, wine.
