Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2012

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Concentrated aromas of blackberries and black cherries with an inviting hint of cedar. The wine’s silky palate is long and expansive, boasting a beautiful balance of black fruit and fine tannin structure. Its finish is lively, lingering and laced with a sweetness of fruit. A deliciously seductive wine to be enjoyed now or cellared through 2028. Decant for 60 to 90 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors. Chef’s Pairing Suggestions: The 2012 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon’s luscious fruit, round structure and lower alcohol make it a versatile companion at the dinner table. This wine’s French oak aging helps complement grilled fare, such as lamb, steak, pork or chicken, and its dark fruit flavors will stand up to richer dishes, such as veal tenderloin with a wine sauce, mushroom risotto or duck confit. Its medium body highlights lighter dishes as well—think spiced ahi tuna, grilled steak salad and charcuterie. Varietal Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon 16% Merlot 5% Petit Verdot 2% Malbec Ageing: 69% French and 31% American oak barrels for 12 months; 41% new oak consisted of 73% French, 27% American. Alcohol: 13.69% T.A.: 0.65 g/100mL pH: 3.55 R.S.: 0.02%
