At the release of the 1995 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this Bordeaux-like wine reminded Winemaker Rob Davis of the hands of a surgeon—strong and well-coordinated, yet delicate.
After two decades, the 1995 Jordan still displays great balance between its persistent tannin structure and seemingly youthful acidity. Black berry, cherry and cassis dominate the nose and are amply confirmed on the palate with the addition of cedar and a hint of anise. Its combination of French and American oak influence plays a supporting role in the backdrop. For 750mL bottles, drink now and decant for 15 minutes. Larger formats are approaching peak drinkability.Download Tasting Notes
