"A Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend named after the pro golfer, this new bottling is dry, well-structured in tannins and earthy. It shows flavors of freshly crushed blackberries, anise, cedar and tobacco, with a sprinkling of cocoa dust. Should develop well over the next 6 years. — S.H. (11/1/2008)" -Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast
