From the first vintage in 1976, Tom Jordan has sought to create a soft, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon in which the winemaking is simply a logical completion of nature's work. With this in mind, Jordan Vineyard & Winery has successfully maintained a tradition of producing elegant, refined Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon in Northern California's Alexander Valley.
The continued addition of fruit from hillside vineyards and the blending of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot with the Cabernet Sauvignon is responsible for the well integrated flavors, deep color and full mouth feel of the 2003 vintage. The vibrant blueberry qualities of the Petit Verdot marry well with the soft, alluring flavors of Merlot and contribute to the complexity of the masculine, tannic nature of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2003 Cabernet is very rich in texture with opulent flavors, a restrained framework of oak and a lingering finish of subtle earth, cigar tobacco and cedar.
