Aromas of black cherries wrapped in a spice box of nutmeg, clove and allspice jump from the glass. The palate is filled with flavors of black currants and plum that lead seamlessly to silky tannins and black cherry notes. Blackberry, Mission fig and black cherry notes linger on the finish. The combination of elegance and intensity make it a fitting vintage to celebrate 40 years of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy now after decanting for 30 minutes or cellar through 2035.The dark fruit flavors, silky palate and structure make it a lovely wine for food pairing. This wine’s elegance, acidity and spice notes complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, roasted chicken or grilled pork loin. The wine’s earthiness even complements vegetarian dishes, such as mushroom risotto, ratatouille or roasted root vegetables.

COMMENTARY: The Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet continues to be one of Sonoma County's top performers since its debut 1976 vintage. I drank many bottles of through the years with fond recall. The 2016 vintage exemplifies beauty, elegance, and balance. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers excellent aromas and flavors of red fruits and savory spices. Its decidedly red currant highlights would pair nicely with a panko-crusted, rosemary-infused, roast rack of lamb. (Tasted: May 14, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

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.
