Twice I have ordered the 2007 Jordan Sonoma Cabernet offered by Wine Chateau. Both times I have received the Alexander Valley Jordan, although the Invoice clearly states Sonoma. Why is this?
COULD BE BECAUSE THE WINERY IS IN SONOMA
Alexander Valley, like Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley, are all grape growing regions in Sonoma. It is also possible that a vintner specifying Sonoma on the invoice might alos be trying to distinguish between his wines made from grapes grown in different regions (Napa, instead of Sonoma for example).
This vintage provided growing conditions that truly made fruit flavors flourish. Spring started off with warm weather, and the June bloom revealed a smaller crop than 2006, which concentrated flavors in the grapes. Ideal weather with moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine prevailed throughout the summer, allowing us to spend six weeks (September 1–October 14) picking pristine, uniform grapes with optimal sugars, acids and flavors.
Wine Maker Notes
Each vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted in a balanced style—delightfully drinkable in its youth and over time, as well. To ensure optimal enjoyment upon release, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is aged a year longer prior to release than most California Cabernets.
