Red Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon
Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine 2015 is the cooler vintage to their soft, silky Bordeaux style. Aging entirely in French oak barrels for the first time played a pivotal role in this wine. It exudes an excellent fruit character and elegant structure that French oak supports and elevates. It is pure elegance in a glass. It offers aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries, and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak's fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through.
This 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon's red fruit flavors, silky palate, and structure make it a fantastic wine for food. The classic pairing would be New York Strip steak or filet mignon. Still, the elegance, uplifting acidity, and toasted oak nuance will complement grilled or savory roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, roasted chicken, or grilled pork loin. It's a medium-bodied red wine that won't overpower more delicate dishes, such as mushroom risotto, ratatouille, or a duck confit. Enjoy!
