Wine & Spirits Review
Jordan has always hewed to a discrete style of cabernet - a style that was a natural match for the cool 2012 vintage. This is quiet and supple, garnet-red rather than purple, with aromas of rose and tobacco leaf lasting in a long, bright line of flavor. It's an elegant cabernet to decant now for duck breast or age for another five years or more.
Wine Tasting Notes
Delicate aromas of fresh cranberry and red cherry mingle with enticing notes of cassis, chocolate and tobacco. The wine is round, soft and refined with elegant flavors of red currant, freshly cut herbs, vanilla bean and allspice. Predominantly French oak aging lends structure to the mid-palate with soft tannins and an inviting mouthfeel, balanced by a backbone of clean acidity. This wine's enduring finish makes it perfectly suited to enjoy today or cellar worthy through 2022-2027.
