1999 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Concentrated aromas of black cherry, black berry and cassis leap from the glass. Continuing to showcase a great structure and polished tannins, the 1999 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon wine is rich and silky on the palate, showing layer upon layer of dark fruit flavors integrated with smooth tannins and an attractive freshness for its age. Fresh and bright out of the bottle. No need to decant. Drink 750mL bottles now through 2021. The 1.5L may be enjoyed now through 2025, 3L through 2030 and 6L through 2035.
