(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.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Jordan's estate vineyards with small quantities of fruit from other prime vineyards. Aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, this is a rich and deeply textured wine with layers of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate. A subtle framework of oak and vanilla complements slight notes of cedar and sweet leather.
