Jordan Vineyard & Winery has successfully maintained a tradition of producing elegant, refined Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon in Northern California's Alexander Valley.
Wine Tasting NotesThe continued addition of fruit from estate hillside vineyards and the blending of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot with the Cabernet Sauvignon are responsible for the well integrated flavors, deep color and full mouth feel of the vintage. The bouquet is highlighted with aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate, with undertones of sweet tobacco and cedar. The Cabernet is very rich in texture with opulent flavors of ripe blackberry, cherry and cassis. This Cabernet has a lingering finish of subtle earth, cigar tobacco, cedar, and a well integrated and restrained framework of oak.
After four days completing primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in large, upright oak tanks. The wine was then aged in 68% French and 32% American oak barrels for 12 months, and in large, upright oak tanks for an additional three months. After a total of 18 months in oak, the wine was bottled and held for another 17 months prior to release. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc; 13.5% alcohol.
The exemplary 2003 growing season produced a layered, richly textured wine. Over time, the oak has transitioned into a supporting role for the luscious, black cherry fruit that remains abundant. Approaching full maturity with a soft, velvety structure throughout. Decant 30 to 60 minutes. Drink now through 2016
Notes: 12 months in 68% French oak and 32% American oak; 3 months in American oak tanks
