2012 Jordan Wines (Jardin) Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate: Jordan Wine Estate (Jardin)

Region: Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South Africa


Tasting Note:April 13, 2016

Solid garnet red core and slightly lower intensity around the edges. Lots of greenery on the nose such as bell peppers and other green vegetal notes. Definitely has a lighter body than expected matched with low plus tannins (4.5/10). Palate started off with some vegetal and earthy notes. As it opened up (on day two) it started to develop some very light dark berry undertones. Slightly dry moderate finish. Was expecting a little more but for Jordan's entry level Cabernet Sauvignon it is very drinkable and especially in South Africa (with their price of $9.00) it would be a great everyday drinker.
