2017 Chardonnay

A rare expression of California Chardonnay that excites the senses. Bright and delicious.

TASTING NOTES: Inviting aromas of honeysuckle and lemon peel lead to bright flavors of stone fruits and citrus. The palate is elegant yet succulent, with layers of oak-laced lemon, pears, quince and white peach—all supported by uplifting acidity. Its crisp, citrusy finish lingers on the palate, enticing you to take another sip.

VINTAGE NOTES: Days remained rainy and cool from late winter into early spring, allowing bud break to occur at a more typical time in mid-March. Bloom occurred under normal conditions, allowing an average-sized crop of grape clusters to form. Three heat spikes hit in June and July, followed by record temperatures over Labor Day weekend. Sugar levels dropped back to normal, allowing harvest to continue with smaller clusters that showed bright aromas and crisp flavors.

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

The first classic Cabernet Sauvignon in our history aged entirely in French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES: Pure elegance in a glass. Aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak’s fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through.

VINTAGE NOTES: The last grapes were crushed on September 28, making our 40th vintage one of the earliest-finishing harvests in Jordan’s history. Bud break was early with dry spring days followed by unusually cool weather in May. Dry weather continued with a few heat spikes in September. Despite the lower yields, this wine is rich with a concentration of tannin provided by this vintage’s uniquely small berries.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L

A special vintage that lends itself to the long, graceful aging that only a large-format bottle can provide.

TASTING NOTES: Concentrated dark fruit aromas of black currants, black cherries and blackberries. The rich and seductive palate showcases layers of fine tannins, blackberries and cassis that have found seamless balance after additional bottle aging. Its masculine structure is harnessed by a long, graceful finish, laced in black cherries and French oak notes.

VINTAGE NOTES: Though it began as one of the warmest, driest and earliest growing seasons, 2013 had moderate weather throughout summer, allowing the grapes to develop intense flavors with lots of structure. This vintage exemplifies our move to a higher percentage of French oak to complement the natural grape tannin found in the collection of grower vineyards that have been the soul of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon since 2006.
