Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
Pure elegance in a glass. Aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak's fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through. The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon's red fruit flavors, silky palate and structure make it a wonderful wine for food. The classic pairing would be New York Strip steak or filet mignon, but the elegance, uplifting acidity and toasted oak nuance will complement grilled or savory roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, roasted chicken or grilled pork loin. It's a medium-bodied red wine that won't overpower more delicate dishes, such as mushroom risotto, ratatouille or duck confit.
Showing an elegant structure, this historic wine is well integrated in terms of tannin and soft, supportive oak. Dried herb and clove mark the midpalate, adding seasoning and complex character to the currant core.
