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. This wine's neverending, layered finish makes it enjoyable now or cellarworthy through 2026. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
The Jordan family never followed the herd toward hyperripe cabernet-this 2010 clocks in a cool 13.5 percent alcohol. It feels like a juicy, old-schooler cabernet, its sleek red currant character edged with floral tonesand a savory edge of red pepper skin. The acidity is bright and the tannins gravelly. It should age well, but is already enjoyable. Try it with pot roast.
A masterful effort that shows superb elegance and length; excellent juxtaposition of red currants and dried leaves; very representative of the Alexander Valley; found some boysenberries in the flavors; exuberant aftertaste.
