Ok and lips turned slightly upward at the end - bought at a great price - know why now

One of the better birth year vintages I've ever had!

The color on this wilne is not nearly as deep as it is on many high-end cabs. The nose has an oaky, black currant profile. On the palate, however, the oak is very restrained and the wine is supple and plush without being overbearing. The acidity is very good and the tannins are extremely fine, making it easy to sip. The fruit character is all dark berries and cassis with hints of chocolate in the finish. A fine Cab.

Those Jordan Cabs get me every time. So easily drinkable and velvety smooth. This one was no exception. Delicious. But I still do prefer the 2008 vintage.

Such a classic! Well balanced classic body and structure for Alexander Valley. Open for 6+ hours the tannins have really softened and the fruit, earth and wood have opened up to integrate nicely on the palate. Can't go wrong with this producer unless there's a dismal vintage due to weather.

Founded in 1972, Tom & Sally Jordan, from CO, decided to head to CA’s wine country and produced their inaugural vintage in 1976 vintage. A Fav of mine with a steak, and the ‘13 is beautiful! Blend of 76% Cab Sauv, 16% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec & touch of Cab Franc. Deep Ruby red with aromas of red fruit and floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and blackberry with oak, spice and currant notes. Rich tannins, well balanced and integrated with fruit and oak. Recommend decanting! Very Nice!
