(From 2011 Vintage) The 2005 growing season was remarkably abundant, allowing us to thin the vines early in the season for optimal uniformity. Exceptional weather during harvest allowed the grapes to develop optimal ripeness and complex structure.
The Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has gained a remarkable reputation as an elegant wine possessing great balance of fruit, body and bouquet. The 1984 Jordan Cabernet exemplifies continuity of style. Our maturing estate vineyards located on the floor of the Alexander Valley contribute enormously to our fine Bordeaux-style wine. The elegance and delicate structure that have become Jordan's trademarks are enhanced in this vintage by blending approximately twelve percent Merlot with the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2000 Vintage) The fleeting hints of citrus and green apples in this one come and go all too quickly, and, in the absence of any semblance of varietal fruitiness and identifiable richness, the wine turns thin and slightly coarse as it crosses the palate and empties out into a forgettable finish.
