Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects not only the qualities of an exceptional vintage, but also an elevated essence of Cabernet fruit due to strategic vineyard sourcing and extended bottle aging. After almost 35 years as winemaker here, I’m thrilled to present a wine that is a statement of not just where we’ve come from but also where we are going. – Rob Davis, winemaker

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

Lots of strong aromas: cherries and blueberries. The mouthfeel is very rich, with hints of vanilla. Awesome wine.

I don't know what I would rate this wine. It was a gift, one that I am currently unable to replace if I open the bottle, so for the time being I have simply added it to my cellar. Cnn Traveller wrote an article about the creator of this wine in an article labled A Vine Romance http://www.cnntraveller.com/2009/03/30/a-vine-romance/2/ which is very interesting. You can read a little more about it on the official site. http://www.zumot-wines.com/ourWines.php

Fantastic cab. Black cherry and berries on the nose leading into notes of cassis, vanilla and oak with a smooth finish. I have had every vintage since 1996 and find Jordan always delivers quality. The influence of Andre Tchelistcheff is evident to this day in Rob Davis' winemakling style.

nice wine, make sure you let this breathe at least 1/2 hour to give a chance to build

Disappointing at best for the price. Am comparing with a Markam 2007 and the Markam, though less expensive by far outclasses the Jordan

One of the more nuanced, classical expressions of cabernet that you will find in California. It's no wonder, since winemaker Rob Davis trained under California winemaking pioneer Andre Tchelistcheff during Jordan's nascent years in the mid 70s. Davis... Devon Magee.

Concentrated, lovely black fruits aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry with a suggestion of vanilla, coconut and cedar.

Tight, firmly tannic and well focused, with complex cherry, currant, menthol and cedar flavors. Turns dry and tannin on the finish, but it's not out of line for its age. Needs cellaring; best from 2000 through 2008.

Bright ruby purple cast. Medium-bodied. full acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Red fruits, minerals, brown spices. Pleasantly aromatic, with a core of ripe fruit flavors. Lighter in style, with a sense of crispness through the finish. Well balanced.

Tasting Notes:

Concentrated, lovely aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry with a suggestion of vanilla, coconut and cedar. The soft, round tannins and understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characters to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon approachable now or worthy of cellaring for at least 10–15 years.
