The grapes were fermented fifteen days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, four days in stainless steel for extended maceration, followed by two weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The free run was blended with pres fractions. The wine was aged in 67% French and 33% American oak barrels to the end of spring 1996.

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:

This is our best vintage to date! The aroma is packed with blackberry, cherry, cedar, and a hint of anise. The cassis aroma is most evident in this vintage. Although the French and American oak linger on the edge of the fruit, it is the blend of fully mature Merlot Cabernet that is dominating. The artful balance of fruit and oak insure that the tannins are not excessively astringent on the palate. The finish is rich in complex flavors suggesting immediate drinkability. But a wine in balance with this much fruit is a wine that will age well into the next decade. Enjoy because vintages like 1995 are rare!
