Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon is a richly textured wine with intense, ripe flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum and cassis. Slight notes of tobacco and spice and a subtle framework of oak and vanilla complete this delicious wine. GRAPE SOURCE 75.4% Sonoma County 24.6% Mendocino County BLEND 75.4% Cabernet Sauvignon 24.6% Merlot The grapes were fermented eleven days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, followed by four weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 67% French and 33% American small oak barrels for twelve months and in large oak cooperage for an additional six months. The wine was then bottled and aged for an additional seventeen months at the winery so that upon release, it would be elegant and approachable.

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.
