Jordan Alexander Cabernet 2016 Rated 93DM
- Calculated at Checkout
To be released in spring 2020, this mouthfilling wine with layers of spicy red fruit flavors is the second vintage using all French oak, and there was still some oak bite in the finish when I tasted it last fall. The fruit came from 15 different vineyards, with just over 9% of the grapes from Mendocino County. Winemaker Rob Davis likens this vintage to 2012, which has a similar intensity of fruit and harmonious character. Drinking window 2022-2034.
Wine Tasting Notes
Aromas of black cherries wrapped in a spice box of nutmeg, clove and allspice jump from the glass. The palate is filled with flavors of black currants and plum that lead seamlessly to silky tannins and black cherry notes. Blackberry, Mission fig and black cherry notes linger on the finish. The combination of elegance and intensity make it a fitting vintage to celebrate 40 years of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy now after decanting for 30 minutes or cellar through 2035.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec
