Jordan Vineyard & Winery Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 1981

Ratings on Delectable

I've had great luck drinking older bottles that showed well lately--including a fantastic Ridge from the same vintage....but sadly this was a disappointment. Fruit is almost completely gone and time did it no favors. Alas this is one nice benefit of Delectable.....we can be each other's Guinea pigs. The fill was high and the cork was dry but sound. I'd say this is just over the hill and I suggest you pass it off on an irritating in-law, a mortal enemy or an attorney
