2010 & 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon in Wood Box - 2 Bottles

item price qty
2-bottle set $150.00

Description

Selected to be poured side-by-side in Jordan Library Tastings this year, these vintages offer an intriguing contrast-comparison of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon's fruit flavors and tannin structure from wines with differing growing seasons, cooperage choices and varietal blends.

The 2010 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is defined by its approachability and elegance. The 2010 growing season was the definition of "cool climate" in an appellation known for its warmth, creating near-perfect conditions for thick-skinned Bordeaux grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The 2010 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon's elegant aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar mingle with hints of dark chocolate and tobacco to seduce and intrigue. Enjoy now without decanting or cellar through 2026.

One of the most age-worthy vintages of the last two decades, the 2014 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon continued our progression toward all French oak barrel aging to complement the natural grape tannin found in the collection of grower vineyards that have been the soul of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon since 2006. This wine's lovely perfume of ripe black cherries and vanilla bean seamlessly mingles with a hint of slate often found in fine Bordeaux. Blueberry and black cherry flavors fill the palate, laced with broad, smooth tannins wrapped in attractive notes of dried tobacco leaf. Silky, tart black cherries, blackberries and cigar box spice linger on the long finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2033. Decant for 45-60 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors.

The set includes one 750mL bottle of each wine, packaged in a wood box.

A Jordan notecard will be included on all orders with gift notes entered.
