Food Pairings for Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
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.
