Smoky and slightly nutty on the nose with a hint of earth and dried leaves covered by fresh red cherry and red currant fruit with just a hint of mint. Just a little on the young side, this shows some tension on entry with polished yet abundant tannins and integrated acidity keeping the core of rich, slightly tactile but ultimately fresh fruit under wraps. The oak is adding a nutty layer here, and some lovely spice notes that come out on the back end along with red cherry and currant fruit. This really builds nicely to the long finish which shows lovely interplay of wood spice, fresh fruit and minty notes. Elegant and polished old school California Cabernet. 92pts

Deep purple color. Slight plum and cherry aroma. Fruit forward with black cherry and blackberry notes rounded out with a delightful earthy finish with a touch of herbs. Gentle but noticeable tannins. Good now but probably will be worth aging.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Concentrated, lovely black fruits 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.

With its dry earthiness, this is classic Jordan. It shows blackberry and black cherry flavors, with an herb note. The tannins are gentle. It will age for years, softening and gaining earthy complexities. Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Notably elegant and refined, this is polished at points, firm on the finish. The core black cherry and blackberry flavors are fresh and lively. Drink now through 2020. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon spent 19 months in new and used French oak. It has an austere, smoky bouquet with roasted herbs and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with sharp red cherry and strawberry fruit, and sharp acidity, but there is more than enough freshness and delineation on the conservative finish. Drink 2012–2017.

Winemaker's Notes:

To make a wine of greatness, the vintner must accept losses in both grapes and wine due to strict quality standards similar to the very best crus in Bordeaux. These sacrifices allowed us to overcome a difficult growing season like 2008, to achieve, in the end, a classic vintage marked by elegance, restraint and Jordan’s hallmark consistency—a wine that will wow wine lovers for a decade-plus.

Tasting Notes:

2008 showcases both the delicacy of the vintage and Jordan’s smooth, approachable style. Elegant aromas of cherries and plums open to a soft, silky mouthfeel boasting a spectrum of red and black fruit flavors. A hint of spicy oak is drawn from the American oak, while the French oak builds a seductive midpalate with soft fruit tannins. Enjoy now or cellar through 2020.
