Our last vintage produced with only two Bordeaux grapes in the blend, the 2001 Jordan Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon also marked our third harvest of the Jordan Estate hillside vineyards.
With one of our earliest harvests on record, this vintage produced fruit especially noted for its small berries and loose clusters. 2001 also marked the third harvest of our hillside vineyards. Though these grapes accounted for only 32% of the total tons harvested, the intensity of their aromas and the overall depth of their character promised great things to come.
At this stage in its life, 2001 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is showing flavors of red and black cherry with attractive, earthy notes of leather, tobacco and cedar typical of a mature Bordeaux-style wine. It carries an elegant backbone of tannins into a rich, smooth finish. The 750mL should peak by 2018, the 1.5L by 2022, the 3L by 2030 and the 6L by 2035.
Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is considered a great choice for food pairing due to its balance of fruit, acidity and lower alcohol. This Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon is very versatile on the dinner table, from meat and poultry dishes to pastas and grilled vegetables.
