Jordan Winery, Alexander Valley (Sonoma County, California) Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

($57):  An early harvest and a short crop describes the 2015 vintage in Sonoma.   The warmth that causes an early harvest and a reduced yield can result in concentrated, powerful wines.  To Jordan’s credit, they maintained their restrained style that focuses on elegance rather than weight in this Cabernet.  Not a trace of over ripeness or heaviness, it delivers bright fruit and savory notes supported by suave tannins and wonderfully lively acidity.  The enchanting freshness keeps you returning for another sip.  Delightful now, I know from experience than Jordan’s Cabernets develop exquisitely with bottle age, so there’s no rush.
