PRICE ON 7/23/2014: $29.99

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Tyler Florence Cabernet Sauvignon has opulent rich cherry, dark berry and cassis character perfectly balanced by supple tannins and hints of toasted vanilla and toffee—a classic expression of this world-famous Cab region. Enjoy with rack of lamb, tender beef fillet or rich, roasted vegetables.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Syrah, and 2% Cabernet Franc

My Notes:

About Tyler Florence:

"On December 11, 2009, I met with Michael Mondavi and his family at their beautiful winery in Carneros, at the southern tip of Napa Valley. Michael, his son Rob Mondavi, Jr., and his daughter Dina and I sat around a table and conducted our first blending session for Tyler Florence Wines. One of the things I love best about putting together my recipes Is experimenting with different ingredients in order to combine flavors in perfect balance. Turns out, it's one of my favorite things about wine making, too."
