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.

Tasting Notes

A vintage that needed the extra bottle age to find its groove. The 2004 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing aromas of herbs and spices to complement its lovely red fruit flavors, from white cherry and cranberry to raspberry and strawberry. Silky-smooth tannins with an attractive vanilla character add weight to the mid-palate and length to its spice-laced finish. Due to its smooth, silky palate and soft tannins, the 2004 Jordan can pair with an array of foods, especially those with grill flavors to complement the wine’s spice and vanilla from American oak aging. This wine can be enjoyed now at its peak, or it will continue to reward collectors through 2022 in 750mL bottles, 2030 in 1.5L magnums, as well as 3L through 2035 and 6L through 2041.
