Jordan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Crushed Capsule 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were fermented thirteen days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, followed by four weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 62% French and 38% American small oak barrels for twelve months and in large oak cooperage for an additional six months. The wine was then bottled and aged for an additional fourteen months at the winery so that upon release it would be elegant and approachable.

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

Tasting Notes:

The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon is a richly textured, full-bodied wine with multi-layered flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis. Slight notes of cedar and sweet leather and a subtle framework of oak and vanilla complete this complex wine.

The grapes were fermented thirteen days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, followed by four weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 62% French and 38% American small oak barrels for twelve months and in large oak cooperage for an additional six months. The wine was then bottled and aged for an additional fourteen months at the winery so that upon release it would be elegant and approachable.
