Though this vintage showed well immediately upon its release in 2009, the 2005 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is meant for the cellar and now in its prime.
With concentrated aromas of cassis, cherry, cedar, red rose petal and tobacco, this Cabernet Sauvignon’s complexity continues through the flavors, which include red currant, cherry, blackberry and blueberry with a hint of vanilla from oak aging. Round tannins balance and support this medium-bodied wine’s ripe fruit. This wine will continue to age gracefully until 2020 in 750mL and 2030 in large-format bottles. Decant for 60 to 90 minutes.
Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is considered a great choice for food pairing due to its balance of fruit, acidity and lower alcohol. This Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon is very versatile on the dinner table, from meat and poultry dishes to pastas and grilled vegetables.
