Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2010Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Alexander Valley, CA, $53 (S) – Rating 92

A vibrant wine from a cooler growing season. Like the vintages before, Jordan Cabernet is approachable as soon as the bottle opens but still benefits from at least 30 minutes of decanting. Blended from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Vivid aromas of blueberry, blackberry pie spice and tobacco box. A lush mouth-feel with balanced acidity and supple tannins. Flavors of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, mocha, dark spice with hints of oaky vanilla and espresso in the long finish.

2009 Jordan Vineyard and Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Ca, $53 – Rating 92

Consistently a great Cabernet, elegant and medium bodied. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec at only 13.5% alcohol, it is very approachable with only a short decant. The nose excites with aromas of cherry, raspberry, dark chocolate, a little chili spice. Well integrated flavors, supple tannins and balanced acidity all combined with flavors of plum, dark cherry, raspberry, dusty dark chocolate and baking spice. Definite notes of dark cherry chocolate on long finish. Buy This Wine
