Our 1981 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captured the intensity of a short, very warm harvest season in wine country.
From the appearance to the finish, this expression of Jordan Estate Alexander Valley fruit clearly displays characteristics of a slowly and carefully aged wine. The 1981 now shows aromatics of dried black cherry, plums and raisins accompanied by savory notes of dried herbs, mushroom, olive and tobacco with a touch of acidity. The 750mL should be enjoyed now. Refusing to give up its youth, 1981 large-format bottles are pensive, persistent and can be appreciated by all wine lovers. Decant off of sediment and enjoy now.Download Tasting Notes
