Jordan Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 Wine Review (NW)

Nice nose of dark berries
Juicy core on the palate
Good finish with moderate tannins

Jordan delivers again! The 2001 is a wine I've enjoyed quite a few times now. Often at business dinners I attend, the restaurant of choice is a steakhouse and the wine of choice is California Cab. This is not a very creative formula, but it seems to appeal to the masses. At least there are often high quality wines on the list at these places. Of course, they cost a fortune, too. This Jordan was priced at $102 at The Palm, which is more than a 100% mark-up over the store price. In the store it runs $45-$48 and can be found on the internet for as low as $39. Fortunately the wine was a crowd pleaser at this recent business dinner. Raise a glass!
