Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
Special library release directly from the winery. The 2002 vintage can be defined by its uniformity of fruit due to an excellent growing season tempered by a lack of extreme heat or rain. The advent of our Indian Summer during the second week of harvest prompted a quick finish, so that harvest lasted just three and a half weeks. Overall, it was a wonderful season, producing a layered, textured Cabernet Sauvignon. After more than 10 years in the bottle, the 2002 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has evolved into a ringer for Left Bank Bordeaux with a classic perfume of red cherries and violets, backed by seamlessly integrated tannins. A rich mid-palate of silky black fruit is woven with dried coconut and vanilla that transition into a lingering and memorable finish. Drink now or cellar the 750mL through 2020.

Jordan winemaker Rob Davis graduated from UC Davis as an Enology major in 1976, and then began working hand-in-hand with famed winemaker André Tchelistcheff during Jordan's first harvest.
