Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
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 and violets linger in the long finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2033. Decant for 45 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors.
Chef’s Pairing Suggestions:
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, 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.

With generously rich fruit on a lean frame, this cabernet carries varietal notes of fresh green herbs turned toward smoky tobacco by the wine’s time in oak. The tannins have a black-pepper spice, feeling light and gracious, ready for seared duck breast. - Wine & Spirits Magazine 90 Points
More of a Left Bank style with an earthy, leather and pencil-shaving character. This is svelte and athletic in structure, a wine of charm rather than power, with a core of sweet blackcurrant fruit. - Decanter Magazine 90 Points
