Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects not only the qualities of an exceptional vintage, but also an elevated essence of Cabernet fruit due to strategic vineyard sourcing and extended bottle aging. After almost 35 years as winemaker here, I’m thrilled to present a wine that is a statement of not just where we’ve come from but also where we are going. – Rob Davis, winemaker
Lots of strong aromas: cherries and blueberries. The mouthfeel is very rich, with hints of vanilla. Awesome wine.
I don't know what I would rate this wine. It was a gift, one that I am currently unable to replace if I open the bottle, so for the time being I have simply added it to my cellar. Cnn Traveller wrote an article about the creator of this wine in an article labled A Vine Romance http://www.cnntraveller.com/2009/03/30/a-vine-romance/2/ which is very interesting.

Smooth lacks complexity heavy cassis
Fantastic cab. Black cherry and berries on the nose leading into notes of cassis, vanilla and oak with a smooth finish. I have had every vintage since 1996 and find Jordan always delivers quality. The influence of Andre Tchelistcheff is evident to this day in Rob Davis' winemakling style.
nice wine, make sure you let this breathe at least 1/2 hour to give a chance to build
Disappointing at best for the price. Am comparing with a Markam 2007 and the Markam, though less expensive by far outclasses the Jordan
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
One of the more nuanced, classical expressions of cabernet that you will find in California. It's no wonder, since winemaker Rob Davis trained under California winemaking pioneer Andre Tchelistcheff during Jordan's nascent years in the mid 70s. Davis... Devon Magee.

Tight, firmly tannic and well focused, with complex cherry, currant, menthol and cedar flavors. Turns dry and tannin on the finish, but it's not out of line for its age. Needs cellaring; best from 2000 through 2008.
Bright ruby purple cast. Medium-bodied. full acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Red fruits, minerals, brown spices. Pleasantly aromatic, with a core of ripe fruit flavors. Lighter in style, with a sense of crispness through the finish. Well balanced.

Concentrated, lovely aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry with a suggestion of vanilla, coconut and cedar. The soft, round tannins and understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characters to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon approachable now or worthy of cellaring for at least 10–15 years.
