“Welcoming Cabernet” might seem like an oxymoron, but Jordan has always aimed for a style that’s drinkable on release. Mostly hillside and benchland Cabernet, supported by Petit Verdot and Merlot and aged a full 24 months in bottle before release, this emphasizes effusive red fruit and a sweet, leafy tobacco aroma. You could drink it now with steak tartare, or put it away for another seven or eight years.
This is a complex, layered and elegantly conceived wine. It’s enjoyable now in its juicy waves of red currant and cassis, with a background hint of brown sugar and toasted oak. (VB)
Bright red. Cherry red. Both juicy and dry. I'm not sure I would guess it was Cabernet Sauvignon if I had it blind because tannins are already so velvety for this stage, gentle but not overly soft. 17/20 points (JH)
A reined-in style that's successful and appealing, with a narrow band of cedary oak cloaking modest dark berry and underbrush flavors. Keeps the focus on nuance and detail. (JL, Web-2016)
