Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis mingle with hints of violet and dark chocolate to seduce and intrigue. The palate is inviting and silky, with a vivid core of cassis that defines every sip, balanced by a backbone of acidity and a smooth tannin structure. This wine's never-ending, layered finish makes it enjoyable now or cellarworthy through 2026. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
Chef's Pairing Suggestions: This wine's lush fruit texture, bright acidity and low alcohol make it a natural go-to for food and wine pairings. The 2010 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon carries such an elegance and textural evolution from the palate through the finish that myriad pairing options present themselves-from grilled Cornish hens, duck confit and veal tenderloin to Sonoma lamb, roasted venison and dry-aged beef.
Wine & Spirits"The Jordan family never followed the herd toward hyperripe cabernet-this 2010 clocks in at a cool 13.5 percent alcohol. It feels like a juicy, old-school cabernet, its sleek red currant character edged with floral tones and a savory edge of red pepper skin. The acidity is bright and the tannins gravelly. It should age well, but is already enjoyable. Try it with pot roast."
