My older brother the 2005 is a bit argumentative. I’m more approachable and vibrant!

My birth year and the inaugural vintage of a classic California wine. This wine improved with about an hour and a half of oxygen.

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.
