2007 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1077864 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark More Bordeaux-like than the typical California Cab. Generous in fruit and succulence, with a delectable forest floor, cedar and fresh-herb savouriness. Precise and pure, with crackling acidity and great cellar potential. 18/20 points. (LM) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Benefits from the riper year, with more generous plum and wild berry fruit woven in with the tobacco, herb and sage. Ends with firm, chewy tannins, but also more fruit than the prior two vintages. Drink now through 2016. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and less than 1% Malbec, aged for 12 months in 70% French oak and 30% American oak. Winemaker's notes: "The 2007 growing season made this vintage a winemaker's dream. A smaller crop yielded more concentrated flavors in the grapes, and moderate temperatures allowed the fruit to mature slowly and beautifully. A seamless wine, the 2007 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon exudes beautiful, dense, blackberry aromas that echo through the mid-palate. The mouthfeel is silky-smooth with soft, round tannins accented by a vanilla quality from aging one year in primarily French oak barrels. Enjoyable now or worthy of cellaring through 2020."
