Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2008 750ml

Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

To make a wine of greatness, the vintner must accept losses in both grapes and wine due to strict quality standards similar to the very best crus in Bordeaux. Two significant frosts in spring of 2008 affected grapevine growth, lowering grape cluster yields as much as 20% per vine. A wine that captures the heart of Jordan's style—balance, elegance and full expression of fruit—Jordan 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has a smooth, silky structure that showcases the delicacy of the vintage. Elegant aromas of cherries and plums open to a soft, silky mouthfeel boasting a spectrum of red and black fruit flavors with a hint of spicy oak. Enjoy now or cellar through 2020.

In 1972, Tom and Sally Jordan, a young couple from Colorado who shared an unbridled enthusiasm for French food and wine, followed their hearts to California’s wine country and established Jordan Vineyard & Winery. For more than a decade prior, they drank virtually only French wines, enjoyed French food that Sally diligently learned to cook, and traveled throughout France, wining and dining their way through every region. The two knew a winery would one day be in their future, but ironically never seriously considered starting one in France. Then one night while enjoying their first glass of famed Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in San Francisco, they had an aha moment: They could realize their very French vision in Northern California.

When the two married in 1959, they dreamed of being vintners together. Francophiles, they drank virtually only French wines, enjoyed French food that Sally diligently learned to cook, and traveled throughout France, wining and dining their way through every region. In the 1950s there weren’t any restaurants of note in their home town of Denver, so the Jordans either traveled abroad or entertained at home for culinary experiences. The two knew a winery would one day be in their future, but ironically never seriously considered starting one in France. Then one night while enjoying their first glass of Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour in San Francisco, they had an aha moment: They could realize their very French vision in Northern California. The landscape they encountered on their first foray into wine country would be unrecognizable to most visitors today. The rolling, pastoral hills of Sonoma County were dotted with cattle and fruit trees with nary a vineyard in sight. And it wasn’t much more developed over in Napa, where prune orchards outnumbered vineyards and Robert Mondavi had only founded his eponymously named winery six years earlier.
