Video Tasting Notes: 2008 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Beginner
Winemaker Rob Davis describes the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley which releases on May 1, 2012. View the tasting note at http://www.jordanwinery.com/wines/cabernet_sauvignon/vintages/2008.
To make a wine of greatness, the vintner must accept losses in both grapes and wine due to strict quality standards similar to the very best crus in Bordeaux. Two significant frosts in spring of 2008 affected grapevine growth, lowering grape cluster yields as much as 20% per vine. A wine that captures the heart of Jordan’s style—balance, elegance and full expression of fruit—Jordan 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has a smooth, silky structure that showcases the delicacy of the vintage. Elegant aromas of cherries and plums open to a soft, silky mouthfeel boasting a spectrum of red and black fruit flavors with a hint of spicy oak. Enjoy now or cellar through 2020.
