Jack Nicklaus Wines Golden Bear Reserve

Jack Nicklaus Wines Golden Bear Reserve 2009

The First of the Golden Bear Commemorative Series, this limited edition wine celebrates Jack Nicklaus’ first major victory at the U.S. Open. Only 1,000 Magnum bottles are produced with 100% Napa Valley Appellation. The wine is crimson in color, with an intense aroma of dark cherry layered with spicy notes of anise and clove. Concentrated flavors of dark plum and raspberry are followed by a lush, full-bodied and bright acidity on the mid-palate. The smooth, velvety tannins grant this wine a persistent, lingering finish.
