Wine Tasting NotesThe continued addition of fruit from estate hillside vineyards and the blending of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot with the Cabernet Sauvignon are responsible for the well integrated flavors, deep color and full mouth feel of the 2002 vintage. The bouquet is highlighted with aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate, with undertones of sweet tobacco and cedar. The 2002 Cabernet is very rich in texture with opulent flavors of ripe blackberry, cherry and cassis. This Cabernet has a lingering finish of subtle earth, cigar tobacco, cedar, and a well integrated and restrained framework of oak.
Food Pairings for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
Considered a vintage of patience and arguably this decade’s greatest, 2002 has evolved into a ringer for Left Bank Bordeaux with its silky-smooth tannins and layers of complex cherry and cassis fruit. This is an ever-changing wine that is tasting magnificent this year. Decant 30 minutes prior to serving. Drink now through 2017.
