It's been awhile since I had a young vintage Jordan but it was the best they had to offer at the United Lounge. It's a 12 so it drinks softer young. However, it's still not eventful. At least, not yet. The fruits are ruby & ripe but don't really sing like they should as most of the 12's I've had. Blackberries, black plum, plum, black raspberries, strawberry preserves, unstated baking spices; vanilla, mocha, caramel, soft barrel toast, moist black earth, dry stems, some light and light roasted coffee grounds, decent; acidity, length, balance structure and finish. Don't see this one as a long cellar...10 or 12 years at the most. Looking forward to better things Down Under.

Well balanced and approachable. Loads of dark fruit with a hint of pencil.

Stewed fruit in the nose. Dark plum, cranberry, leather, cedar, green pepper, and white pepper, fresh American oak. The fruit gets brighter through the finish. Moderate plus tannin and acid.

For me this is one of those wines you don’t want to love. You want to look at the price on the list, chuckle and move on to a diamond in the rough. Found a few of these for a great price however and wow was this bottle gone in a hurry. Quite enjoyable, especially on a Tuesday welcoming kids home from school for break. Cheers!

Soft and velvety, but lacking in structure flavor.
