Cherry, raspberry, and dried herb aromas laced with hints of vanilla and tobacco. The palate has a charming weight and velvety texture filled with intense flavors of black cherries and blackberries, all elevated by a lovely backbone of spice notes from extended aging in French oak barrels. Blackberries and hints of dried herbs linger through the long, spice-kissed finish.

The dark fruit flavors, silky palate, and structure make it a lovely wine for food pairing. This wine’s elegance, acidity and spice notes complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, roasted chicken or grilled pork loin. The wine’s earthiness even complements vegetarian dishes, such as mushroom risotto, ratatouille or roasted root vegetables.

Longtime winemaker Rob Davis' masterful balancing act scuppered Mother Nature in a vintage that delivered at least five major heat spikes, along with late-season fires. Luckily for Jordan, harvest was wrapped up by 6 October, well before the fires struck. The wine is impressively fresh, with ripe blackberry, lofty purple florals and sweet cedar aromas courtesy of ageing in 100% French oak. Fine-grained yet grippy tannins coat the full-bodied palate, packed with unctuous layers of blue and black fruits, tobacco, violets and graphite through a cocoa-dusted finish. A real standout from a challenging vintage. Drinking Window 2021 - 2045.

Earthy in composted earth and crushed rock, this elegant wine is lifted by bright red fruit and floral highlights. Plum, currant and subtle oak combine on the palate for a textured, balanced and enjoyable outcome.
