(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.
(From 2011 Vintage) Every vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted with a focus on striking a perfect balance between beautiful fruit, silky tannins and a lingering finish. It is this delicate balance-all done by taste-that allows for the gradual, graceful evolution of Jordan’s Cabernet Sauvignon in bottle. Renowned for our consistency of quality vintage after vintage, Jordan has remained one of the most popular wines on the best U.S. restaurant wine lists for decades. The diversity of our collection of crus-estate vineyard blocks that have more clay-rich soils like the Right Bank of Bordeaux and family grower parcels on mid-slope, well-drained Sonoma County vineyards with mineral-rich, gravelly soils reminiscent of Bordeaux’s Left Bank-gives our new world Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon a complexity found only in the top first growths of the world.
