Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1983

Winemaker's Notes:

Continuity of style is an important goal at Jordan Winery and is harbored in the "estate bottled" concept. We own and cultivate our vineyard which is the exclusive source of our grapes. Yet with successive vintages, the vines acquire additional age, and in turn, provide additional depth and character to the resulting wine. This additional character was further enhanced in 1983 by a very small yield of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The 1983 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon may be our best yet!

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

Wine Tasting Notes(Information provided at release)Continuity of style is an important goal at Jordan Winery and is harbored in the "estate bottled" concept. We own and cultivate our vineyard that is the exclusive source of our grapes. Yet with successive vintages, the vines acquire additional age, and in turn, provide additional depth and character to the resulting wine. This additional character was further enhanced in 1983 by a very small yield of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The 1983 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon may be our best yet! The penetrating aromas of cassis and black currants provide the foundation for a myriad of underlying subtle flavor components that have been enhanced by two years of aging in French and American oak. Approximately ten percent Merlot has been blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon to soften and round the fully developed tannins. This elegantly structured Cabernet rich, full and expansive in the mouth carries a long, lingering finish. Harmonious and balanced, the 1983 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon lends itself to immediate drinking pleasure; however, additional aging will certainly provide greater rewards for future enjoyment. We are very proud of our 1983 Cabernet Sauvignon and as with all of our wines, it is our aspiration that it brings pleasure to wine drinkers for many generations to come.
