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:

Jordan Winery's 1979 Cabernet Sauvignon may well be the finest wine we have produced in terms of fruit and finesse. Because the wine has slightly less alcohol than in previous vintages, the natural acidity and tannins play a more important role. The result is a wine that is assertive in fruit, yet well rounded in bouquet - supple, yet complex. The elegance that has become the Jordan trademark is achieved by blending approximately 8% Merlot with the Cabernet, and by the use of small French and American oak cooperage. The overall charm and balance of the wine lends itself to immediate drinking pleasure, yet its complex nature will reward further aging in years ahead.
