Tasting Notes

After nearly 14 years of aging in bottle, the 2002 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon still tastes quite young. Deep, intriguing bouquet with pretty aromas of red cherries, dried herbs and a hint of white pepper. The palate is silky and round, exuding layers of black cherry and black berry flavors seamlessly integrated with smooth tannins. Attractive flavors of dried cherries and jasmine tea linger on the memorable finish. No decanting necessary. Drink now or cellar the 750mL through 2022 and magnum bottles through 2030.
