Golf legend Jack Nicklaus and Terlato Wines have released a new line of Nicklaus-branded wines. The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2007 Private Reserve, a Bordeaux-style blend, are getting their public debut at the Jack Nicklaus-hosted Memorial Tournament, being played June 3-6 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was created from premium parcels of fruit in the Rutherford Bench district of Napa Valley while the Private Reserve used grapes from selected sites in Stags Leap. There are 500 cases of each wine, the Cabernet sells for $35 and the Private Reserve has a retail price of $43.
Nicklaus is a long-time wine collector. He 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. Nicklaus joins a long tradition of golfer wines that include offerings from Arnold Palmer, Ernie Els, Nick Faldo and Greg Norman. The wines are available through www.uncorked.com and at premier golf clubs and resorts throughout the United States.
