1978 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis mingle with hints of violet and dark chocolate to seduce and intrigue. The palate is inviting and silky, with a vivid core of cassis that defines every sip, balanced by a backbone of acidity and a smooth tannin structure.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) The 2003 Jordan Cabernet is very rich in texture with opulent flavors, a restrained framework of oak and a lingering finish of subtle earth, cigar tobacco and cedar.

    (From 2002 Vintage) Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines on Aug-06.
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2000 Vintage) The fleeting hints of citrus and green apples in this one come and go all too quickly, and, in the absence of any semblance of varietal fruitiness and identifiable richness, the wine turns thin and slightly coarse as it crosses the palate and empties out into a forgettable finish.
