Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a smooth and tangy Bordeaux-style wine with lively plum and berry fruit; medium-bodied and elegant, it is another winner in a long line from this acclaimed winery. Aging entirely in French oak barrels for the first time played a pivotal role in this wine. It exudes an excellent fruit character and elegant structure that French oak supports and elevates. It is pure elegance in a glass.
Intense aromas of ripe black cherry, graphite, and blackberry interlace with a lovely violet floral note. The palate is inviting and well-balanced, exuding flavors of blueberries, cassis, and boysenberry beautifully interwoven with silky tannins from the French oak barrels. The dark fruit flavors and delicate acidity evolve beautifully in the glass and linger on the palate.
The dark fruit flavors, silky palate, and beautiful structure make it a decadent wine for food pairing. This wine's elegance, acidity, and spice notes complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as coq au vin, lamb ragu, or roasted salmon with miso. Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon's earthiness complements vegetarian dishes, such as roasted vegetables, mushroom risotto, and ratatouille.
