Jordan Alexander Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $47.99-$49.99, 91 points, appeared opaque at the core trending a rich black currant purple with a transparent rim.
Black berries, especially currant, aroma was dominantly fruity, but some earthy notes developed.
Medium-plus body carried a complex layering of flavors beginning with blackberry, then cola flavors, followed by black currant. Seldom have I notice such a clear demarcation.
Though the body of this Jordan Cabernet was a bit wooly, the acidity was good and the moderate tannin mellowed the wine somewhat.
Finished long with a hint of sweet red grape, spice, and the 13.5% alcohol.
