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.

“What began as one of the warmest, driest and earliest growing seasons on record, 2013 had moderate weather throughout summer, allowing the grapes to develop very intense, concentrated flavors with lots of structure. 2013 is the richest, most complex Jordan I’ve tasted upon release.” 
Winemaker Rob Davis

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.”

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.

Cooperages

Barrels from five French coopers (one of which also makes American barrels) 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.

Food Pairing

The 2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon’s dark fruits, rich palate and fine tannin structure make it a versatile companion at the dinner table. Though a natural pairing for a flavorful steak, such as ribeye or filet mignon, this wine’s balance of fruit, tannin and acidity beautifully complement grilled or roasted dishes, such as herb-crusted lamb, pork belly or rosemary chicken. Its dark fruit flavors will also stand up to aged cheddar cheese and richer meals, such as veal tenderloin with a wine sauce, mushroom risotto or duck confit.
