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

Tasting Notes:

Jordan's 1988 Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon offers layers of cherry, cassis and subtle oak character. Cool, slow fermentation retains the deep fruit qualities while awarding full and plentiful tannins to the wine. Two years of aging in French and American oak evolved the complexity and elegance so distinctive of Jordan's Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon. Two further years of bottle aging assure proper development of the wine at the time of its release to market.

The spirit of the Estate concept is our foundation for winemaking. Wisdom and experience, garnered through decades of disciplined vineyard care, guide the development of quality grapes. Each passing year sees increased maturity in the vines of Jordan's estate vineyard as varietal fruit aromas and flavors deepen.
