Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Tom Jordan founded Jordan Vineyard and Winery in 1972 with the vision of producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in Sonoma County. Today John Jordan continues his father's legacy as CEO. Jordan winemaker Rob Davis graduated from UC Davis as an Enology major in 1976, and then began working hand-in-hand with famed winemaker André Tchelistcheff during Jordan's first harvest. Typically made of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, Jordan Cab spends about 12 months in barrel, 64% French oak and 36% American oak. Look for red currant, blackberry, cherry and blueberry flavors with hints of vanilla on the finish. Serving with filet mignon and roasted potatoes or with fine cheeses such as Irish Cheddar, Drunkin' Goat and/or Manchego.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine represents the first time the winery has aged its red in entirely French oak, switching slowly over from American. Notions of clove and vanilla accent sanguine red fruit and savory elements.
