Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1985
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.

Food Pairings for Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
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.
