Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2013 exemplifies our move to a higher percentage of French oak to complement the natural grape tannin found in the collection of grower vineyards that have been the soul of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon since 2006. What began as one of the warmest, driest and earliest growing seasons on record, 2013 had moderate weather throughout summer, allowing the grapes to develop very intense, concentrated flavors with lots of structure. 2013 is the richest, most complex Jordan I’ve tasted upon release. — Rob Davis, winemaker Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of cassis, black currants, blackberries and ripe cherries with a lovely floral note. The palate is rich and seductive, exuding blackberries and cassis interwoven seamlessly with fine tannins from new French oak barrels. Its masculine structure is harnessed by a beautiful balance of acidity and dark fruits with a long, cassis-laced finish. A collectible vintage to be enjoyed now or cellared through 2032. Decant for 45 to 60 minutes to further elevate aromas and flavors. Chef’s Pairing Suggestions: The 2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon’s dark fruits, rich palate and fine tannin structure make it a versatile companion at the table. Though a natural pairing for a flavorful steak, this wine’s balance of fruit, tannin and acidity beautifully complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, pork belly or rosemary chicken. Varietal Blend: 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon 15.5% Merlot 7% Petit Verdot 1.5% Malbec 0.5% Cabernet Franc Aging: 83% French and 17% American oak barrels for 12 months; 43% new oak consisted of 86% French, 14% American. Alcohol: 13.8% T.A.: 0.68 g/100mL pH: 3.44 R.S.: 0.03%
