Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) Concentrated, lovely aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full withcontinued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry with a suggestion of vanilla, coconut and cedar. The soft, round tannins and understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characters to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon approachable now or worthy of cellaring for at least 10–15 years.

Winemaker's Notes

The Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has gained a remarkable reputation as an elegant wine possessing great balance of fruit, body and bouquet. The 1984 Jordan Cabernet exemplifies continuity of style. Our maturing estate vineyards located on the floor of the Alexander Valley contribute enormously to our fine Bordeaux-style wine. The elegance and delicate structure that have become Jordan's trademarks are enhanced in this vintage by blending approximately twelve percent Merlot with the Cabernet Sauvignon.

    (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.
