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

This wine was tasted October of 2008. I would recommend drinking this wine now if you are lucky enough to have some lying about. This wine was complex with notes of cedar, leather, and earth as well as black currant. Faint notes of chocolate and vanilla were detectable in the long finish. The structure was very well balanced with smooth tannins. A great wine.

Tasting Notes:

This wine has a fresh, berry aroma with undertones of cherry, and the taste is soft and round with ample, rich tannins and a lasting finish. Characteristic of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley, Jordan's 1985 exhibits dominant cassis flavors. A fine Bordeaux-style wine, this Cabernet Sauvignon reminds us of two of our previous vintages; it has the gentle fruitiness of the 1978 combined with the backbone and aging potential of the 1979 vintage. The full fruit flavors and soft tannins make the 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon a delicious wine to drink at a youthful age, yet the complex structure of this Jordan classic assures development and enjoyment for many years to come.

Continuity is apparent in this vintage which the winemaker composed by blending approximately twelve percent Merlot with the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine aged in small French and American cooperage for twelve months.
