Day 135 Drink: Jordan 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
Tom Jordan founded Jordan Vineyard & Winery in 1972 in Sonoma County, California. His son, John, left his law practice five years ago to lead the family business.
Jordan 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a purple red Alexander Valley wine with a silky smooth and full flavor profile. The wine is a blend of 75 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 percent Merlot, 5 percent Petit Verdot and 1 percent Malbec. Blackberry and cassis come together well upfront in this 13.5 percent alcohol by volume wine, which has a round finish. Just a hint of spice and wood in the finish. A very nice dinner wine.
