Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2011

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Delicate aromas of fresh cranberry and red cherry mingle with enticing notes of cassis, chocolate and tobacco. The wine is round, soft and refined with elegant flavors of red currant, freshly cut herbs, vanilla bean and allspice. Predominantly French oak aging lends structure to the mid-palate with soft tannins and an inviting mouthfeel, balanced by a backbone of clean acidity. This wine’s enduring finish makes it perfectly suited to enjoy today or cellar worthy through 2022-2027. Decant for 30 minutes prior to serving to further enhance aromas and flavors. Chef’s Pairing Suggestions: This wine’s style makes it ideal for diverse food pairings. It will shine with savory meat dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb or roasted chicken, allowing the fruit in the wine to take center stage. Play up the delicacy of the fruit by pairing this Bordeaux-style blend with an unexpected cheese course like fresh chèvre goat cheese with Herbes de Provence. Cooperages: Five French and two American barrel coopers selected based on blind tastings and 2011 vintage flavor profile; primarily medium toast. Ageing: 12 months in 73% French and 27% American oak barrels; 37% new oak (62% French, 38% American). Bottle aged an additional 22 months prior to release. Varietal Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon 17% Merlot 3% Petit Verdot 1% Malbec Alcohol: 13.8% T.A.: 0.60 g/100mL pH: 3.59 R.S.: 0.03%
