Winemaker's Notes:

Visually stunning with a deep garnet-ruby hue, this wine possesses an unprecedented elegance of fruit expression, lively acidity, tannin structure and oak integration. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. The mouthfeel is soft, silky and robing with a seemingly neverending finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2025. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.

The incredible balance of acidity, varietal fruit character, silky tannin structure and restrained alcohol makes this vintage unparalleled in its versatility on the dinner table. It carries the depth and body to hold up to a marbled rib-eye and the finesse and elegance to gracefully accompany the leaner filet mignon. Grilled, braised or roasted, lamb, venison, pork, chicken and duck also make for perfect pairing material—the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec

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.
