Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1984

Winemaker's Notes:

The Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has gained a remarkable reputation as an elegant wine possessing great balance of fruit, body and bouquet. The 1984 Jordan Cabernet exemplifies continuity of style. Our maturing estate vineyards located on the floor of the Alexander Valley contribute enormously to our fine Bordeaux-style wine. The elegance and delicate structure that have become Jordan's trademarks are enhanced in this vintage by blending approximately twelve percent Merlot with the Cabernet Sauvignon.

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

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1984 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ml



Tasting Notes:

The 1984 Jordan Cabernet reminds us of our 1976 vintage. It is very drinkable with full fruit flavors balanced beautifully with subtle taste components achieved by two years of aging in small french and American cooperage. Characteristic of a warm growing season in Alexander Valley, the wine shows a rich, fruity bouquet and ripe flavors of cassis. The charming fruit flavors and soft tannins make this 1984 vintage pleasant to drink at a youthful age, and yet with proper cellaring the subtle, complex components assure development of the wine for many years to come.
