After a total of 18 months in oak the wine was bottled and aged for another 17 months prior to release. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc; 13.5% alcohol.

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

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 2002 vintage. The bouquet is highlighted with aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate, with undertones of sweet tobacco and cedar. The 2002 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.

Jordan Cabernet has become an icon of quality, consistency and style. From their first vintage in 1976 it was clear that this was much more than just another Calfornia Cab. And over the years it has also become clear that Jordan Cabs not only deliver in their youth but they age beautifully, rewarding those patient enough to lay them down in their cellars. This 2002 comes directly form the winery's cellar and is at a peak of drinking perfection. Considered a vintage of patience 2002 has evolved into a ringer for Left Bank Bordeaux with its silky-smooth tannins and layers of complex cherry and cassis fruit. This is a seamless wine that is tasting magnificently at this point in its life.

Tasting Notes:

Considered a vintage of patience and arguably this decade’s greatest, 2002 has evolved into a ringer for Left Bank Bordeaux with its silky-smooth tannins and layers of complex cherry and cassis fruit. This is an ever-changing wine that is tasting magnificent this year. Decant 30 minutes prior to serving. Drink now through 2017.
