Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 1976

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1976 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is already receiving acclaim as one of the great wines of California, even as it is being released. Produced in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County, the wine is characterized by a remarkably elegant balance of fruit and tannin, highlighted by a richly perfumed bouquet. The immense charm and finesse of this exceptional wine is strongly evocative of the style of the great clarets of Bordeaux. At present, the wine is surprisingly pleasant and inviting, yet blessed with a tannin backbone which will insure the continued development of complexity for years to come.

Tucked into the hills of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, Jordan Vineyard & Winery has been dedicated to world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and hospitality since its founding in 1972 by Tom and Sally Jordan. Under the guidance of Tom’s son, John, Jordan continues its pursuit of excellence in every aspect of the business, striving to place in balance the complexities of terroir, the artistry of the cellar and the joys of the table. The estate boasts nearly 1,200 acres of rolling hills, vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot), oak trees, lakes, streams, olive trees, and organic gardens, as well as winery, hospitality and operations facilities. Since the inaugural 1976 vintage, Jordan wines have been renowned for their consistency. We believe strongly in the timeless qualities of balance, elegance and food affinity, which are found in our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Architecture, landscaping, gardens, hospitality, and cuisine contribute to a special sense of place. The wines and the place give all of us at Jordan the rewarding feeling that our work is bringing pleasure to the many people who drink our wine and visit the estate. Read less
