(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.
(From 2008 Vintage) 2008 showcases both the delicacy of the vintage and Jordan’s smooth, approachable style. The fruit is the focal point in this silky, elegant wine. Elegant aromas of cherries and plums are mirrored in the palate. The mouthfeel is soft and silky, with subtle red and black cherry flavors and a hint of spicy oak from barrel age that complements the fruit tannins.
