Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon expresses all the splendor of its vintage in an exquisitely balanced structure of fruit, body and bouquet that has become the trademark of Jordan wines. Winemaker Rob Davis uses only grapes hand-picked in Jordan's own vineyards in the Alexander Valley to produce the winery's Bordeaux- style Cabernet Sauvignon. Each year the maturing vines of these vineyards yield grapes deeper and more complex in character.

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 has been mature for years. What's left is a modest range of cedary cherry and currant flavors with notes of herb, especially dill.--1986 California Cabernet horizontal. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1986 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ml



Tasting Notes:

The bouquet of Jordan's 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon is full and concentrated; aromas of lush, ripe plum and crisp, varietal fruit unfold slowly releasing subtle hints of anise. The wine is full and round in structure with lavish and deeply-set fruit enhanced by two years of aging in small French and American cooperage. Soft plentiful tannins assert themselves in the lingering finish and promise development of the wine for many years to come.
