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. You can read a little more about it on the official site. http://www.zumot-wines.com/ourWines.php

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.

Disappointing at best for the price. Am comparing with a Markam 2007 and the Markam, though less expensive by far outclasses the Jordan

A rich, elegantly styled Cabernet, with generous ripe plum, black cherry, herb and fresh earth notes that are vibrant and complex. Excellent balance, finishing with a long, clean aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.

Elegant, with medium body, ripe cherry, currant, herb and spice flavors, and finishing with polished tannins. Drink now through 2005.

Concentrated, lovely aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued avors 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. - Winery ** Only 18 in Stock **

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.

Jordan Vineyards almost single-handedly put Alexander Valley on the map. Since the release their first wine, the 1976 Cabernet Sauvignon, they’ve been a standard bearer for what this warm-climate corner of Sonoma County can produce. And year after year Jordan’s Cabernets continue to deliver bold, ripe flavors, beautifully polished with ideal balance for aging. This 2006 falls right into their classic mold. It’s ripe, round and balanced; concentrated with a lush mouthfeel, blackberry, black currant and black cherry flavors with hints of vanilla and toast. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec that was assembled from only the best, most distinctive lots. Aging took place in French and American oak barrels, 33% new before two years of bottle age.

Light in body, with a tobaccoey, dried herb quality to the cherry fruit. Finishes fast, but quite an elegant wine, and should age for a while.

Winemaker's Notes:

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
