Jordan 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Jordan Vineyards almost single-handedly put Alexander Valley on the map. Since the release their first wine, the 1976 Cabernet Sauvignon, they’ve been a standard bearer for what this warm-climate corner of Sonoma County can produce. And year after year Jordan’s Cabernets continue to deliver bold, ripe flavors, beautifully polished with ideal balance for aging. This 2011 is the latest release and it's a huge success for what was a very challenging vintage. 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, they reduced production drastically to ensure that the wine they bottled was up to the usual Jordan standards. Wine was tasted and retasted many times all through the winemaking process and anything that didn't show was sold off for bulk wine. Barrel aging was just 12 months in 73% French and 27% American oak barrels; 37% new oak. And then as usual the wine was aged in bottle for 22 months at the winery so all of rough edged could be rounded off and the tannins could subside. The result is a solid, elegant, beautifully drinking Cabernet. A signature style of Jordan Cab, forward and supple yet well structured for aging in your cellar. It shows beautifully defined black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. Another winner! Wine & Spirits scored it 92 points saying "Jordan has always hewed to a discrete style of cabernet - a style that was a natural match for the cool 2011 vintage. This is quiet and supple, garnet-red rather than purple, with aromas of rose and tobacco leaf lasting in a long, bright line of flavor. It's an elegant cabernet to decant now for duck breast or age for another five years or more."

Best Cab
Jordan remains one of the best cab's on the market. I've always thought a bit over priced but it's simple supply and demand. Buy a case and keep it for special occasions. It can lay on the cork for many years to come.

Josh states that Jordan sources from 60 different vineyards. How can they keep their taste consistency with so many vineyards ?
Nick M on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not a question of how many sources of grapes you have but how you vinify them and put together a final blend. The best example is probably in Champagne where producers want a consistent "house style" for their non-vintage brut. They will blend dozens of different wines from current and past vintages to achieve this on a regular basis.
