A wine with elegance, refinement and plenty of verve. Its perfume of blackberries and black cherries mingles with a backdrop of subtle oak notes. The palate has a velvety richness that coats the mouth in concentrated flavors of blackberries and cassis, laced with fine tannins from seamlessly integrated, new French oak. Enticing flavors of chocolate, violets and dark fruits linger on the long finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2033. Decant for 45 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors. The black fruits, velvety palate and tannin structure in 2014 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon allow it to be more versatile with food. Though a natural pairing for a flavorful steak, such as ribeye or filet mignon, this wine's balance of fruit, tannin and acidity beautifully complement grilled or savory roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, pork belly or rosemary chicken. Its dark fruit flavors will also stand up to richer meals, such as veal tenderloin with a wine sauce, mushroom risotto or duck confit.
Wine EnthusiastTart and tangy in underlying acidity, this elegant red offers a mix of dried herb, tobacco leaf and red currant, showing subdued ripeness within a context of elongated polished tannin and well-integrated oak.
Wine SpectatorThe juicy black cherry and plum fruit up front is laced with light savory and floral hints, ending with a whiff of tobacco. The open-knit finish is a bit shy on depth. Drink now. 74,832 cases made.
