Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1978

Winemaker's Notes:

The Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has gained a remarkable reputation as a wine possessing a great balance of fruit, body and bouquet. Each year approximately 10% Merlot is included in the blend and this, coupled with the use of both American and French small cooperage, adds to the charm and softness of Jordan Cabernet. The 1978 is the first estate bottled wine of Jordan and is an example of a beautifully rounded wine with great femininity, but a rich complexity too. The wine is delightful to drink now, but will reward keeping int he months and years ahead.

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
