“A growing season without extremes, 2006 provided the opportunity for a classic vintage. The smaller berries resulted in a beautifully structured Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is built to endure.” — Winemaker Rob Davis

Tasting Notes

Pretty aromas of red cherries, clove and dried herbs open to flavors of black cherry and smooth tannins. The tannins are balanced but still structured by beautiful acidity, hinting at this wine’s longevity. Flavors of tart cherry, dusty cocoa and tobacco linger on the long finish. A polished Cabernet Sauvignon that is drinking beautifully now but still has a long life ahead, particularly in large format. Decant and enjoy immediately or allow to breathe for an hour. Drink through 2026 in 750mL bottles and 2031 in 1.5L magnum bottles, as well as 3L through 2036 and 6L through 2041.

Jordan Estate and family growers


The vineyard blocks were harvested and fermented separately, spending 12–21 days in tank depending on the particular character of the site. Malolactic fermentation occurred before the lots were re-tasted to determine which exuded the sensory characteristics to merit inclusion in our barrel blend lots.


A combination of top French and American oak coopers


Aged for 12 months in two-thirds French oak and one-third American oak barrels, of which 33% were new, before two years of bottle age.
