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.
Jordan Cabernet has become an icon of quality, consistency and style. From their first vintage in 1976 it was clear that this was much more than just another Calfornia Cab. And over the years it has also become clear that Jordan Cabs not only deliver in their youth but they age beautifully, rewarding those patient enough to lay them down in their cellars. This 2002 comes directly form the winery's cellar and is at a peak of drinking perfection. Considered a vintage of patience 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 a seamless wine that is tasting magnificently at this point in its life.
