Tasting Notes

Writer Dan Berger recommends the 2011 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley: "The excellent 2011 Cabernet vintage in the North Coast (don’t believe what you’ve read about this cool year!) helped Rob Davis craft a real gem. Perfect varietal character of red and dark cherry fruit, a complex mid-palate, and a wine with the moderation in all things (13.8% alcohol) to become great in the cellar. Sensational wine making."

What To Drink Now: Refined Cabernet Sauvignon

Writer Hayley Hamilton says the 2011 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is a "...well structured, high quality wine, even in a very difficult vintage year. Well rounded and nicely textured, with layers of red cherry, berry, soft herbs, dark chocolate and spice. A wine that is lovely to enjoy now, but will also age for several years."

Wine Review Online

2013 Jordan Chardonnay Recommended

Robert Whitley says, "This vintage is structured and balanced, straddling the fine line between richness and firmness that creates a scintillating tension. Aromas of lemon oil and spice dominate now, but this wine will age well as it moves toward more mature aromas and that seductive touch of butterscotch that shows up eventually in perfectly aged white Burgundies."
