Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 blind wine review by (PB)
In Boston recently (NW) served me a surprise blind which means I am supposed to guess what it is. It's fun when you are close; it's embarrassing when you're not. This was the latter!
My notes said the following: Garnet hue with some depth and a few years of age; boquet of cherries with slight licorice and sweet fruit.
Palate: solid tannins, sweet cherry fruit, with a quick finish; an excellent wine perhaps a quality Chianti from the 2001 vintage.
When (NW) revealed what it was I was ashamed; okay mildly embarrassed. The last Jordan Cab I remember was one of the best wines I had had to that time and that was back circa 1984. (NW) paid $50 for this puppy and we indeed raised several glasses--until it was gone! You can't win em all!
