There is femininity about the 2004 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that will seduce you with soft, supple tannins and a sweetness of fruit.
The 2004 growing season started early with a very warm spring. Harvest began in August and ended in September. Our skilled vineyard workers picked the fruit at optimal ripeness, preserving its delicate flavors. Our hillside vineyards accounted for 30% of the final blend, giving this wine intensity and structure.
The 2004 vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has blossomed with notes of white cherry, plum, and cassis, laced with a thread of allspice and cedar throughout the mid-palate and finish. Featuring more red fruits upon release, this wine now shows a more savory side with black currant, cedar and clove that is perfectly suited to robust meat dishes. Decant and allow to breathe for an hour before enjoying. This wine can be enjoyed now while at its peak, or it will continue to reward collectors through 2018 in 750mL bottles, 2026 in 1.5L magnums, as well as 3L through 2031 and 6L through 2036.
Jordan Alexander Valley 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.
