Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were fermented fourteen days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, followed by three weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 71% French and 29% 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.

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that possesses layers of cassis, blackberry, coffee, cedar and vanilla. Rich, intense and complex, the 1999 vintage will be remembered as one of the more age worthy wines we have produced.

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.
