This wine has a lot of classic California character - ripe dark currant and cherry fruit, a hefty dose of sweet oak, and some nice mint/floral and cola notes. Balanced and exceedingly smooth in the mouth and finish, so I would not opt to put this one down much longer. Very soft and polite - almost unstructured - which detracts from the grip and overall feel. But a tasty and easy to drink Cabernet that will not overpower your meal.

For the second time, thought it was okay, semi firm, semi astringent tannin, not overly fruited. You won't find the body (huge mouthfiling blah blah blah) of the newer California processes

According to Steven Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Deep red. Red- and blackcurrant, cherry and menthol on the nose, with subtle vanilla, cola and tobacco notes adding complexity. Tightly wound red berry and bitter cherry flavors are framed by dusty tannins, picking up anise and herb notes on the back end. Understated and brisk, with good finishing clarity and mineral cut. Winemaker Notes - The 2005 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon spent 22 days in stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation and extended maceration, followed by two weeks in large upright oak tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for six months in large upright oak tanks and then aged in 64% French and 36% American oak barrels for 12 months. Prior to release, the wine was bottled and held for another 20 months. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot; 13.5% alcohol. With concentrated aromas of cassis, cherry, cedar, red rose petal and tobacco, this wine’s complexity continues through the flavors, which include red currant, cherry, blackberry and blueberry with a hint of vanilla from oak aging. Round tannins balance and support this medium-bodied wine’s ripe fruit. This wine shows beautifully in its youth and will continue to age gracefully for a decade or more.
