Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Jordans estate vineyards with small quantities of fruit from other prime vineyards. Aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, this is a rich and deeply textured wine with layers of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate. Slight notes of cedar and sweet leather are complemented by a subtle framework of oak and vanilla.

About Jordan Vineyard & Winery:

In 1972, Tom and Sally Jordan, a young couple from Colorado who shared an unbridled enthusiasm for French food and wine, followed their hearts to California’s wine country. Since their inaugural 1976 vintage, the Jordans have been heralded for their elegant wines, culinary excellence and gracious hospitality. Jordan Vineyard & Winery lies tucked into the hills of Alexander Valley in Sonoma County, where the iconic Jordan chateau, inspired by the great estates of France, overlooks 1,200 acres of rolling hills and vineyards with three quarters of the land dedicated to natural habitat. Today, second-generation vintner John Jordan continues to build upon the legacy of his parents, preserving the timeless winemaking qualities of balance, finesse and food affinity.
