Having searched out odd wines during many years of drinking I was delighted to have a wine from a country I’ve never had. Indeed if asked, I’d have guessed they didn’t make wine there, but Jordan does.
My son went to Jordan on business and he brought back a bottle of
2020 Jordan River Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (Jordan, Madaba)
Which we had with dinner on Friday and jolly good it was too. Although I think it could have been better with longer in the bottle. Having spent 12 months in French oak barrels, it was closed and tannic. My son said he’d had their non-reserve unoaked Cab Sauv in Jordan and really enjoyed them.
Unfortunately he brought only one bottle, for which he was criticised by his partner, but as the bottle weighed a hefty 1.65 Kg, I understood. Hopefully he will return to Jordan next year.
