Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: Medium-dark ruby; attractive, deep, intense, black cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of cassis, black olive, and espresso; full body; tight, dark cherry and blackberry fruit flavors with bright acidity and notes of dried herbs and toasty oak; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Approachable now though best to age for a few more years. 13.8% alcohol; blended with 15.5% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 1.5% Malbec, and 0.5% Cabernet Franc; released April 2017. (May 2017)

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

Rich, savory aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry and earthy plum on the nose, lightly floral and complex. Explodes on the palate with juicy cranberry and red currant flavors, a bit of herb, cherry fruit and dry, dusty earth and leather. This is mellow and smooth but very expressive, with herb, fruit and tannic earth in equal parts, good structure and a complex blend of fruit and aromatics. 91 pts.
