Jordan Vineyard & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Jordan honors the traditions of Bordeaux and blends its Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This beautifully made wine benefits from malolactic fermentation, two years of aging in French and American oak barrels and two years of bottle aging the Jordan cellar. Considered by the winemaker to be Jordan's finest Cabernet Sauvignon to date, the wine - which is extraordinary at the time of its release - will draw upon its innate balance of fruit and tannin to age very gracefully. Those who cellar this wine will find reward.

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. 1990 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml



Tasting Notes:

This is classic Jordan. A brilliant tone of garnet red, this Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon displays the lushness of grapes grown in a stellar season in Alexander Valley. The tremendously rich aromas suggest cherries, cassis, and slight mintiness. The flavors are reminiscent of fresh summer berries with a complement of vanilla and almond. The fruit intensity is balanced with pleasant tannins and elegant texture.
