2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
The 2013 vintage exemplifies our move to a higher percentage of French oak aging to complement the natural grape tannin found in the collection of grower vineyards that have been the soul of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon since 2006. Jordan is often considered more Saint-Julien in style, but the 2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is reminiscent of Bordeaux’s Pauillac. This will be a long-lived vintage.
Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of cassis, black currants, blackberries and ripe cherries with a lovely floral note. The palate is rich and seductive, with concentrated flavors of blackberries and cassis interwoven seamlessly with fine tannins from new French oak barrels. Its masculine structure is harnessed by a beautiful balance of acidity and dark fruits with a long, cassis-laced finish. A highly collectible vintage to be enjoyed now or cellared through 2032. Decant for 45 to 60 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors.
Harvest Dates: September 12–October 9, 2013
Vineyards: More than 60 vineyard blocks from Jordan Estate and 15 family growers.
Fermentation: Lots kept separate by vineyard; 15 days extended maceration; every lot reevaluated after 11-day primary fermentation; malolactic fermentation completed over 16 days in upright oak casks before assemblage to create our “barrel blend.”
Cooperages: Barrels from four French coopers and one American coopers were selected based on blind tastings and vintage flavor profile; primarily medium toast.
Aging: 83% French and 17% American oak barrels for 12 months; 43% new oak consisted of 86% French, 14% American.
Selection: Post malolactic fermentation, individual lots were blind tasted and ranked, then assembled into our “barrel blend.” After one year in barrels, the “barrel blend” was reassessed, and only top lots were combined for the final master blend.
Varietal Blend: 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15.5% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot; 1.5% Malbec; 0.5% Cabernet Franc
