“The Jordan family never followed the herd toward hyperripe cabernet—this 2010 clocks in at a cool 13.5 percent alcohol. It feels like a juicy, old-school cabernet, its sleek red currant character edged with floral tones and a savory edge of red pepper skin. The acidity is bright and the tannins gravelly. It should age well, but is already enjoyable...” Wine & Spirits, 92 Points

Tasting Notes

Aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar mingle with hints dark chocolate and tobacco to seduce and intrigue. The palate is inviting and silky, with a vivid core of blackberry flavor, balanced by a backbone of acidity and a smooth tannin structure. This Bordeaux-style wine has a very long, juicy, cherry-laced finish that speaks to its youthfulness. Enjoyable now or cellar 750mL bottles through 2026, 1.5L bottles through 2035, 3L bottles through 2040 and 6L bottles beyond 2040. No decanting necessary for 750mL bottles.
