This vintage perfectly blends Old World and New World styles. With its polished structure, the 2006 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has always suggested the ultimate longevity.
Enticing aromas of black plum and currant open to flavors of tobacco, milk chocolate and vanilla in the glass. Soft, round tannins and structured acidity create a velvety texture on the mid-palate, transitioning into a long and memorable finish. Decant and enjoy immediately or allow to breathe for an hour. Graceful bottle aging has enhanced this balanced and approachable Cabernet Sauvignon worthy of cellaring through 2021 in 750mL bottles and 2028 in 1.5L magnum bottles, as well as 3L through 2033 and 6L through 2038.
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.

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.
