This is 100% Zinfandel from a vineyard first planted in 1893! The vineyard is above the fog line and planted on volcanic and red clay soils. 15% Alcohol but not noticeable. Beautiful color; a sort of magenta and ruby, clear and bright. The nose is great. Earthy and deep with black raspberries, black cherries, a bit of cinnamon and spice. On the palate this is sweet black cherry fruit. Some might call this jammy, but to me that implies a lack of precision which this wine has. Earth and deep.

2013 Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley, USA, California, Sonoma, Wine Review
Ruby/purple in color. The nose has cassis, cherries, cedar and spice. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, this has nice fruit in a more restrained mode. Cherries and cassis with cedar. Medium tannins. Decent balance. Slightly clipped finish. This is a more restrained style of Cab but drinks well right now. Not sure if it will make older bones so I would drink in the next five years.
This is a Zinfandel blend. It seems to be a bit past prime at this point but still hanging in there. Not as energetic as it was a few years prior. No sin in that for this wine, it just means to drink the newer vintages in the first five years or so. Purple in color. The nose has cherries, black cherries, some spice and a bit of alcohol. On the palate, mostly red fruits; cherries and raspberries. Not deep but tasty. There is some heat on it, more warming than hot.
