    Production Notes The Series launched with a Napa Valley red blend from the stellar 2009 vintage that pays tribute to Jack's first "Major" victory at Oakmont Country Club 50 years ago. Our winemaker began sourcing the most sought after fruit from renowned vineyard sites in the Napa Valley. From these site selections, a very strict blending and barrel selection process was conducted from hundreds of lots and just seven barrels, aged for almost two years in French oak, were deemed worthy of this esteemed bottling.
    Alcohol Percentage 14.4%
    Fermentation Stainless Steel Tank
    Aging 21 months in 100% new French oak.
