This was fun. Michael showed up with a 2006 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon last night. A solid, not overly expensive California red. I remembered I had a couple of bottles of this very same wine, only 14 years in the bottle, not 5.
Note how Jordan has refined its pedigree from generic Sonoma County to specific Alexander Valley.
We are absolutely not experts in the department of vintage wines, nor probably is this a wine of great fuss....but it was a rare chance to compare older and newer. The newer was better!
