Aromas of black cherries wrapped in a spice box of nutmeg, clove and allspice jump from the glass. The palate is filled with flavors of black currants and plum that lead seamlessly to silky tannins and black cherry notes. Blackberry, Mission fig and black cherry notes linger on the finish. The combination of elegance and intensity make it a fitting vintage to celebrate 40 years of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.
92pts Wine Enthusiast "Showing an elegant structure, this historic wine is well integrated in terms of tannin and soft, supportive oak. Dried herb and clove mark the midpalate, adding seasoning and complex character to the currant core."
The dark fruit flavors, silky palate and structure make it a lovely wine for food pairing. This wine's elegance, acidity and spice notes complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as herb crusted lamb, roasted chicken, or grilled pork loin. The wine's earthiness even complements vegetarian dishes such as mushroom risotto, ratatouille, or roasted root vegetables.
They focus on three things: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and hospitality. John Jordan's guiding philosophy is that every vintage, every meal, and every tasting should be better than the last. There is a relentless drive to constantly perfect the craft. Made in a more European style that allows them to pair well with a broad range of foods.
Winemaking decisions emphasize the wine's fruit and acidity rather than the alcohol and tannin, achieving elegance and balance in the bottle drives all that Jordan does in the vineyards and cellar.
More than three-quarters of the 1,200 acres that surround the Jordan Winery Chateau remain wild, open spaces that a myriad of animals and plants call home. Preserving natural habitat and conserving resources are two tenets in sustainability efforts. The winery runs almost entirely ion solar energy, and the vineyards and winery are certified sustainable.
