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.
