Tyler Florence Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Our 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.
Chef Tyler Florence and the Michael Mondavi family, long-time Napa Valley vintners, share a passion for pairing food and wine. Now Tyler has teamed up with Rob Mondavi, Jr., fourth generation winemaker, to craft a Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest spots throughout Napa Valley. They looked to the region's dramatic volcanic hillsides and rich, alluvial valley floor for the range of expression this grape achieves in this classic Cab region. Extended blending sessions allowed them to land on the perfect balance of rich, dark berry flavors and soft tannins in Blend #5.
