The “Flying Eagle” Red was named after Bobby’s passion for aviation and his pension for making Eagles on the fly on the Champion’s Tour! Yes, that’s right, in less time than it took for the grapes to age in the oak barrels, Bobby flew two approach shots in the cup on the fly during official Champion’s Tour events and had both moments captured on National Television. The first occurred in the 2011 3M Championship in on the 11th hole of the TPC Twin Cities during the final round. Bobby laced a 9 iron from 132 yards, turned to his caddy, Cliff Robinson, and said while the ball was in the air, “Go in, that’s the exact shot I was trying to hit!” The ball flew straight into the cup for an eagle 2. The Golf Channel captured the whole event, including his words to his caddy.
The second holed eagle on the fly occurred during the 2012 Legends of Golf. Playing with partner Andy North, Bobby flagged a 4 hybrid on the 18th hole of the Savannah Harbor Resort Course during Saturday’s 2nd round from 191 yards that again flew straight into the cup. Ironically, CBS was covering it’s only Champion’s Tour event of the year and captured the event live on National Television. Bobby has worked for CBS as a television announcer for over 20 years.

2012 Flying Eagle-not available
2013 – FLYING EAGLE RED – 15.2% alc. A blend of 70% Petite Syrah, and 10% each of Cab, Syrah and Zinfandel. This Menage is our version of an easy going wine that pairs well with just about everything. Its deep , dark and inky color yield immediate hints of cedar, tobacco & pepper on the nose. And the first sip coats the mouth with black and blue berries finally leading to a smooth long, dark chocolate & berry finish. Drinking great right now, but with big tannins & good acidity, this wine will also age well and continue to mellow out.
