Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1981

Winemaker's Notes:

Seasonal climatic conditions are very important in the development of flavors in the grapes that go into producing a particular style of wine. This is reflected in our 1981 Cabernet, a wine that captured the intensity of a short, but very warm, harvest season. The aroma of cassis-like character is very intense, with less herbaceousness being evident than in previous vintages. This fruit appeal combines well with the flavors achieved by aging the wine for two years in French and American oak. The tannins are much softer and less pronounced than in our earlier vintages, making the wine pleasant to drink at an early age. The 1981 Cabernet is elegant in style, displaying great finesse and full fruit flavors.

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
