Sonoma Family Meal Launches New Disaster Relief Fund

The demand for prepared meals is at an all-time high due to the Coronavirus pandemic. That’s why Sonoma Family Meal, a disaster-focused non-profit created two years ago to feed wildfire victims in Sonoma County, launched a Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund last week—a new initiative to pay local restaurants to provide healthy, chef-made meals to those in desperate need of food right now. John Jordan and the John Jordan Foundation made a $150,000 investment in the fund to help get the program off the ground. You can support this cause with the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund Match Drive. The goal is to raise $300,000.

There are many chef-backed Coronavirus charities that are worthy causes—some chefs are feeding laid-off restaurant workers and others are setting up donation funds for their own employees–but John Jordan was particularly moved by this project after receiving an email from Heather Irwin, the founder of Sonoma Family Meal. The idea of a charity paying restaurants to cook is very new and smart–three of these coronavirus charities providing financial income have emerged in the last week in Northern California. John wanted to do something significant to support a program that helps the restaurant community, farmers, the economy and families in need—at the same time. His $150,000 investment is not contingent on reaching the match drive goal and is in addition to all of the existing John Jordan Foundation charitable programs in place.

Here’s what Sonoma Family Meal will be able to do if they reach their goal of $300,000 to fully fund this program:

  • Pay at least 20 restaurants and caterers to stay open as disaster relief kitchens
  • Put at least 100 Sonoma County restaurant workers back on payroll
  • Provide 100,000 meals for thousands of seniors and families facing food scarcity
  • Sustain this operation for four months

The $150,000 investment from John and his foundation will allow SFM to keep the doors open at least 12 struggling restaurants and caterers throughout the county currently providing meals, purchase 42,000 to-go containers (compostable or reusable) and provide 65,000 meals.

According to Heather, the idea for the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund was born from the work with chef Kyle Connaughton of SingleThread Farms in Healdsburg, the Michelin-starred restaurant that piloted the Sonoma Family Meal program in mid-March and has been cooking 200 meals a day since then, each meant to feed four people. SingleThread began raising money from investors, wineries, and restaurant guests to fund their production of donation meals for Sonoma Family Meal. SingleThread and two other Healdsburg restaurants—Mateo’s Cocina Latina and PizZando—are continuing to cook meals for Sonoma Family Meal and are raising money through their own network of donors to fund their operations. Guests who order takeout from SingleThread through Tock also have the option to donate meals to their Sonoma Family Meal program.

Sonoma County has been through a lot as a community the past several years (from fires to floods), and now the entire world is struggling with this invisible enemy. We invite you to donate whatever you can to this cause and share with your friends who have enjoyed meals at  Sonoma County restaurants. We’re in this together.

Wine Vintage Chart: A When to Drink Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Aging Guide

How long should cabernet sauvignon be aged before you reach for that corkscrew? It’s the question we’re asked most by winery guests and friends on social media, which inspired us to create a new kind of wine vintage chart for cabernet sauvignon. This wine aging chart gives wine lovers an idea of how each vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon may taste and when to enjoy it. In addition to the standard wine bottle size of 750ml, magnum bottles, three liters and six liters are also included. Each year, we will update our Wine Vintage Chart so you’ll have an up-to-date Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon aging guide.

Our wine vintage chart educates on older Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons

Wine Vintage Chart: Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Aging Guide

Cabernet Sauvignon aging potential is quite long due to this Bordeaux wine grape’s natural tannins, ample acidity and affection for oak. But, as with all red wine longevity, the key to aging gracefully in bottle for decades is balance in winemaking. Crafting cabernet sauvignon with fruit flavors, fine tannins, and natural acidity all in balance allows for the gradual, graceful aging and evolution of great cabernet in bottle.

With proper wine storage, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has been known to maintain its grace and elegance in 750ml bottle for about 30 years. Though our winemakers prefer to drink Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 7-10 years after the vintage date, we continue to receive emails from customers who are still enjoying bottles from the late-1970s and 1980s. (I opened a bottle of 1980 Jordan for my birthday last weekend, and it was magnificent.) As a general rule, magnum and other large-format bottles of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon taste best 12-20 years after release.

As you’ll see in this wine vintage chart, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon flavors change from vintage to vintage, but you’ll see some flavor trends in each decade as the wine ages in bottle. Taste characteristics range from the bold, ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry in younger vintages of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon to the subtle aromas of dried cranberry, black tea and leather found in bottles opened more than 10 years after their vintage date. If you like to taste a lot of fruit in your cabernet sauvignon, it’s best to enjoy it within about a decade of its vintage.

Virtually all wine vintage charts are produced by wine journalists who give each vintage for the entire wine region a score, based on the growing season weather and how the wines tasted while young. We decided that our wine vintage chart should be more of a hybrid wine aging chart/wine peak chart/wine flavor chart. Due to the breadth of the aging guide–it goes back to the inaugural 1976 Jordan–we have broken it into decades below. There are also links to download the full vintage chart. We hope you find it helpful when you’re storing bottles of great cabernet and trying to decide when to drink them.

History has shown us that when winemakers harvest cabernet grapes at traditional sugar levels (below 25 Brix) to keep alcohol levels lower (below 14%), retain the wine’s acidity, and age the wine in the types of barrels that do not overpower the fruit flavors, the cabernets tend to be more elegant and less of the powerhouse cabernet style that has come into fashion since the 1990s. In our experience, wines that are high in alcohol and tannin lack the acidity and fruit to age gracefully and taste harmonious when mature. Even for a bottle of red wine, one of the keys to a long life is balance and moderation.

1976-1979 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

The first few growing seasons for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon were a rollercoaster. Drought conditions prevailed in 1976, and 1977 enjoyed a small crop that yielded balanced wines. 1978 was considered the best of the four vintages, producing ripe, rich red wines. However, the 1979 was more balanced and elegant across the region–ideal for the Jordan house style. All Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons from the 1970s are considered past their peak, though we do come across the occasional 750mL bottle that is still alive. Jordan didn’t start producing big bottles in 1977, and the large-format bottles of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon are still quite alive, especially 1978 and 1979.

1980-1989 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

This is the decade Jordan Winemaker Rob Davis rarely wants to revisit, as it reminds him of all the challenging weather conditions he had to overcome to make great cabernet. Journalists declared 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988 as the best vintages of the decade upon release–each producing ripe, flavorful red wines. 1981, 1982 and 1983 were considered tough years that produced leaner wines with 1981 being the most charming of the three. Even though 1980 had a large crop, the vintage has continued to surprise us; even the 750mL bottles are still alive in 2018. Both 1988 and 1989 yielded more simple wines even though 1988 was a small crop and 1989 a bumper. As with the 1970s, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons from the 1980s are considered past their peak, though the 1985-1989 and the 1980 Jordan still have some life in 750mL. Large-format bottles are allowing the 1980s cabernets to retain a longer life. Click view all vintages to see tasting notes.

1990-1999 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

Ah, the memories. There were so many great cabernets in the 1990s, it’s hard to pick the best. Look at all those red fruit notes in the wine vintage chart! Upon release, red wines from 1990, 1991, 1994, 1997 and 1999 were all rich and complex; 1992, 1993 and 1995 produced cabernets that were most elegant and supple, but equally delicious. The 1996 is considered a sleeper vintage that came around with age; winemakers were struggling to replant vineyards due to the phylloxera epidemic, but compelling wines were still produced. 1998 was the most challenging vintage of the decade in terms of weather, yielding leaner, more elegant wines. But, 1998 blossomed and gained complexity with time. Magnums of 1998 Jordan opened at our winery Christmas party three years ago were the star of the show. Still alive with lots of cherry fruit and layers of silk. These vintages are still drinking nicely, so view the wine vintage chart for flavorful profiles that suit your taste.

2000-2009 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

Another strong decade for great cabernet in California. 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2009 are considered the best vintages, producing stunning, complex red wines. But, 2006 should not be overlooked, as it created cabernets that are concentrated and age worthy. The 2000 and 2008 vintages had the most challenging weather, but 2008 is a sleeper vintage–like the 1998–and has never tasted better. It has gained complexity with age. These cabernet vintages from the 2000s are in an optimal drinking window, with big bottles still showing the most dark fruit flavors, so view the wine vintage chart for flavorful profiles that suit your taste.

Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Aging and Flavor Profile Guide 2010-2016

2010-2016 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

A string of great cabernet vintages with only one hiccup. The 2010 vintage was a cooler year producing more elegant cabernets, while the 2011 was so cold and rainy, that many winemakers struggled to make balanced wines. 2012, 2013 and 2014 are the best string of vintages in Jordan winemaking history; most Sonoma/Napa winemakers would agree. All three of highly textured, flavorful vintages with the tannin and acidity to age gracefully. The 2015 is a milestone vintage in its own right—being the first vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon aged entirely in French oak barrels. When looking for a vintage that flaunts Jordan’s hallmark silky-smooth style at an early age, look no further than the 2016.

Where to Find Great Food & Wine To Go During the Pandemic

Normal life has come to a screeching halt for so many people around the globe this month. We’re all adapting to new ways to eat, drink, work and retain the fundamental joy of human contact–all while staying healthy. Fortunately, state officials are stepping up and allowing restaurants to sell wine to-go or pickup or delivery. Jordan has always been considered a “food” wine primarily sold at restaurants, so we’ve compiled a list of restaurants that carry Jordan wines now offering take-out or delivery–and we’re hosting a Takeout Date Night at Home Photo Contest through April 30. Restaurant delivery vs. takeout options and wine offers are included. Please keep in mind that this is a very fluid situation, so services are changing by the hour in each state and to comply with alcohol beverage laws, we must have at least three restaurants in each area/city before we can add to our list. We will be revising this page daily, so please check back for new additions and leave us a comment with any updates.

There’s nothing like a great meal and a nice bottle of wine to take our minds off the unnerving pandemic for a moment. Please stay home, stay safe, pour a glass of wine and share your photos for a chance to win a Wine Enthusiast temperature-controlled wine refrigerator. Cheers to brighter days ahead.

Women in Leadership at Jordan Winery: Three New Faces

The start of a new decade coincides with some exciting changes in leadership at Jordan Winery. Because we’ve been making wine for 44 vintages and counting, we have several employees who have worked here for decades, and the time for their retirement has arrived, albeit bittersweet.  Today, we want to introduce you to three faces that represent the future at Jordan in administration, winemaking and viticulture–and all are female. Jordan has always had many women in leadership, and that continues to trend upward. Of the 10 departments at Jordan, seven are now led by women for the first time. This announcement also coincides with International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month, and John Jordan couldn’t be more thrilled about the decade ahead.

Winemaker Maggie Kruse Jordan Winery Sonoma County Barrels
Maggie Kruse, Jordan Winery Winemaker

Meet Maggie Kruse, Winemaker

Maggie Kruse, who was promoted to winemaker at Jordan last summer, will now oversee both winemaking and winegrowing at Jordan. Maggie joined Jordan in 2006 as enologist and was mentored by longtime Jordan winemaker and winegrower Rob Davis, who retired in 2019 after his 43rd growing season. She is only the second winemaker in Jordan history. The daughter of a beer brewer, Maggie grew up in Milwaukee, Wis., learning about fermentation at an early age. She moved to the Napa Valley at age 17 to pursue her dream of becoming a winemaker. After graduating from University of California, Davis, she worked as an intern at two wineries before joining Jordan Winery as enologist in 2006. She was mentored by winemaker Rob Davis through promotions to assistant winemaker and associate winemaker over a decade, and she became Jordan’s head winemaker in July 2019. Maggie manages all winemaking and winegrowing staff, including the assistant winemaker, enologist, cellar crew and grower relations manager, and she also oversees the day-to-day operations in the cellars, such as quality control experiments, fermentation monitoring, tank and lot organizing, selecting and inspecting barrels, blending, batonnage, selecting corks and bottles, bottling and labeling.

Dana Grande, Jordan Winery Grower Relations Manager

Meet Dana Grande, Grower Relations Manager

Dana Grande has returned to Jordan in the newly created role of grower relations manager, reporting to Maggie. Dana worked in the Jordan Estate vineyards from 1999 to 2012, before moving to Ferrari-Carano Winery to become its grower relations manager—a role that Davis always handled at Jordan. Growing up in Sonoma County, Dana was always intrigued by vineyards even though she didn’t have a family connection to the wine business. While studying biology in college, she was hired to run the vineyard office for Hoot Owl Creek and Alexander Valley Vineyards. At harvest time, she quickly realized that the real action was in the vineyard and learned how to drive a forklift wearing sandals and a sundress. After five years of working in the vineyards, she joined Jordan in 1999 as estate viticulturist and transitioned to vineyard manager during her 13 years with the company. When Jordan sold its first estate vineyard in 2012, continuing a shift toward focusing more on grower fruit, she decided to move to Ferrari-Carano Winery to be grower relations manager—a position that didn’t exist at that time at Jordan. After eight years of working with the Carano family’s grape growers, Dana returned to the Jordan family in February 2020, where she’ll work with Jordan’s cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay growers.

The Best Years for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Back to the 1976 Vintage

What are the best years for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon? This is a question often asked by wine collectors, as well as those who have been holding onto a special bottle from an anniversary or birth year. Because Jordan has been making wine since 1976, there are many great vintages in both our memories and our library, but we asked long-time winemaker and baseball lover Rob Davis, who retired in 2019, to whittle down the best years for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon over 44 years into one list. Consider this his Jordan Hall of Fame. (New wines will be added to this post upon release.)

The below sensory notes and comments were compiled from technical tastings over the last few years, which are also useful for updating the Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Chart & When To Drink Guide for our fans. Vintage wine is a living thing that evolves over time, and every palate finds its own set of charms in each wine. If you open one of these bottles, please tag us @jordanwinery to let us know if you agree with our notes.

Best Jordan Cabernet Years: Old Vintage Wines & Recent Releases

1978 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1978 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

1978 was considered a great vintage across the region. After a cold, wet spring, warm weather prevailed. Despite two previous years of drought, the crop in Alexander Valley was bountiful and of exceptionally high quality. Though 1978 was a classic year for cabernet, four decades is a long time for red wine to live. As expected, the 1978 Jordan Cabernet is beyond peak maturity. It presents shy notes of leather, tobacco and cedar with hints of cherry, spice and dust. While this wine still displays the charms of an old, classic Bordeaux-style red, Rob Davis prefers the 1979 for its aging merit.

1979 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1979 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

1979 yielded a smaller crop than 1978 and the wine was more concentrated, but less opulent. In its youth, the 1979 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon was considered a great wine for its fruit and finesse—assertive in fruit expression, yet well-rounded in bouquet. Decades later, the wine is desperately holding on to what is left of the once perfectly balanced components of acidity, fruit, alcohol and tannins. It has a lovely aged Bordeaux quality (leather, cherry, herbal tea, plums), and a still-lively palate with soft, silky tannins. While wines bottled in 750mL are past their peak, larger formats should be opened now.

1980 jordan cabernet

1980 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine’s fine tannins, firm acidity and rich cherry fruit characters have made it one of Jordan’s longest-lived vintages. The 1980 growing season was long and cool, and the grapes enjoyed extended hang time that resulted in incredibly intense flavors. The vintage was also marked by huge tannins, so the softer Merlot fruit was essential in finding a harmonious balance. The 1980 vintage still flaunts ruby-red color and texture, and tastes 15 years younger than it is. Some delicate red fruits and spices still linger on the soft palate, where the acid and tannins live on. The 750mL, 3L and 6L formats should be enjoyed now. Magnums are at their peak.

1985 jordan cabernet

1985 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Rob Davis regards 1985 as the best vintage of the 1980s—a decade that included very few good years. Gorgeous weather in Alexander Valley produced ripe, rich and fleshy cabernets with superb balance. A nice, even growing season led to tremendous harmony both in the vineyards and the grapes. Though still a beauty on many levels, the 1985 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is finally showing its age. Bottles stored under the best conditions show mature flavors of dried red fruit, leather and earth with hints of caramel. The 750mL is past its peak, and magnums, 3L and 6L formats should be uncorked now.

1990 jordan cabernet

1990 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

This was one of several excellent vintages in the 1990s, including 1990-1992, 1994, and especially 1995 and 1997. The combination of ideal weather and healthy, maturing grapevines produced a remarkable wine that was big and lush, yet balanced. Aside from a slightly reduced crop due to spring rain, 1990 was an ideal growing season. The wine is still lively, with dried cherry and plum aromas in the foreground, backed by forest floor, eucalyptus, tobacco and tea. The finish is long, silky, complex and complete. All bottle formats are drinking beautifully and ready to enjoy.

1991 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1991 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Considered a classic vintage due to the growing conditions, 1991 presented no weather extremes. A late harvest allowed great depth of fruit and complex tannins to develop in Jordan’s Alexander Valley estate vineyards, from which this wine was exclusively made. The wine still offers notes of dried herbs, cassis and plum, with supple tannins and moderate acidity. Drink the 750mL and 1.5L now, as they are just past peak maturity. The 3L and 6L should also be opened now, but will hold for a couple more years.

1992 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1992 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Considered an opulent vintage, this wine benefited from ideal, warm weather during the growing season. The 1992 harvest was early and warm, with very little rain. The grapes in Jordan’s valley floor estate vineyards ripened quickly, offering layers of red and black fruit flavors. Aromas of black cherry, plum, nutmeg, and a hint of fennel are rounded out by perfumed cassis with a bouquet of French oak. Drink the 750mL and 1.5L now, while at peak maturity. The 3L and 6L are also excellent now, and should be decanted 20 to 30 minutes before drinking.

1994 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1994 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

The long, cool harvest season allowed this cabernet to fully develop its varietal character through extended hang time. A long harvest occurred due to cold nights late in the growing season, which prolonged ripening and allowed the fruit to reach optimal sugar levels. Acidity in the juice was low due to the extra time on the vine, but it increased due to the tannic acid in the skins by the time the wine was pressed. The 1994 Jordan Cabernet is just past its peak but still beautifully rounded and balanced with aromas of red cherry, light black fruits and sweet floral notes. Magnums, 3L and 6L formats should be enjoyed now.

1995 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

1995 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

At the time of release, this Bordeaux-like wine reminded Rob Davis of the hands of a surgeon—strong and well-coordinated, yet delicate. A long harvest due to cold nights late in the growing season prolonged ripening and fruit concentration perfectly complemented the rich, supple tannins achieved by the long hang time. The 1995 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon still displays great balance between its persistent tannin structure and seemingly youthful acidity. Blackberry, cherry and cassis dominate the nose and are amply confirmed on the palate with the addition of cedar and a hint of anise. Drink 750mL bottles now (decant 15 minutes before enjoying). Larger formats are approaching peak drinkability.

1997 jordan cabernet

1997 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine’s Sonoma County designation reflects the broader grape sourcing used during the replanting of Jordan’s estate vineyard after phylloxera devastated Northern California vineyards. 1997 was a generous vintage that provided a bounty of stunning fruit—intensely aromatic and layered with lush, dense flavors. Harvest began a month early with grapes picked at a frantic pace. The fruit was intensely aromatic, layered with blackberry, chocolate and cassis. At full maturity, the 1997 Jordan Cabernet presents flavors of black cherry, strawberry, herbs and cedar. With ripe and supple tannins, the wine is at its peak in 750mL and 1.5L. 3L and 6L bottles can hold for three to five more years.

1999 jordan cabernet

1999 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

1999 marked the first harvest from Jordan’s estate hillside vineyards. Overall cluster weights were 40% lower than normal due to tiny, intensely flavored berries. Continuing to showcase a great structure and polished tannins, the wine is rich and silky on the palate, with concentrated aromas of black cherry, blackberry and cassis. Layers of dark fruit flavors are integrated with smooth tannins and an attractive freshness for its age. Fresh and bright out of the bottle—a real Jordan powerhouse—the 1999 is now at its peak. Drink 750mL bottles now through 2021, 1.5L now through 2025, 3L through 2030 and 6L through 2035.

2002 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2002 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Arguably this decade’s greatest vintage, 2002 marks Jordan’s return to the Alexander Valley appellation after replanting its estate vineyard due to phylloxera. The vintage was characterized by fruit uniformity due to an excellent growing season tempered by a lack of extreme heat or rain. Overall, it was a wonderful season which produced a layered, textured cabernet sauvignon. The 2002 still tastes quite young, displaying aromas of red cherries, dried herbs and a hint of white pepper. The palate is silky and round, exuding layers of black cherry and blackberry flavors seamlessly integrated with smooth tannins. Dried cherry and jasmine tea flavors linger on the finish. Drink 750mL bottles now through 2022. Enjoy or cellar magnums through 2030.

2007 jordan cabernet

2007 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2007 vintage was a winemaker’s dream. A smaller crop yielded more concentrated flavors in the grapes, and moderate temperatures allowed the fruit to mature slowly, resulting in one of Jordan’s top vintages of the decade. Temperate conditions allowed the winery to pick pristine grapes over a six-week period, ensuring optimal maturity. The 2007 wine exudes beautiful, dense  blackberry and cassis aromas that echo through the mid-palate. A lush mouthfeel of well integrated, silky tannins and balanced acidity is accented by notes of vanilla and cedar. Drink 750mL bottles now or cellar through 2027. Larger formats can hold from 2035 to 2056.

2009 jordan cabernet

2009 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

Rob Davis was ecstatic about this vintage, which combined an excellent Alexander Valley growing season with Jordan’s new direction for fruit sourcing. Enticing aromas of blackberry, cassis, oak spices and cedar carry through a textured, silky palate with smooth tannins from French oak aging. The 2009 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is still showing some youthful acidity and dark fruit after years of age. Enjoy 750mL bottles through 2028, 1.5L bottles through 2034 and 3L bottles through 2042.

2012 jordan cabernet

2012 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 was truly a phenomenal growing season, resulting in one of the most complex Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons to date. The vintage validated Jordan’s decision to elevate the black-fruit intensity in the wines without abandoning the house style, culminating in an incredibly complex, balanced wine. The 2012 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has concentrated aromas of blackberries and black cherries with an inviting hint of cedar. Its silky palate is plush yet poised, boasting a beautiful balance of black fruit and fine tannin structure. The finish is lively, lingering and laced with ripe dark fruits. The wine tastes incredible in magnum now and will continue to reward collectors for decades.

2013 jordan cabernet

2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the warmest, driest and earliest growing seasons on record, 2013 had moderate weather throughout summer, allowing the grapes to develop intense, concentrated flavors with lots of structure. Exceptionally rich and complex, the wine has 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 with fine tannins from new French oak barrels. Its masculine structure is harnessed by a balance of acidity and dark fruits with a long, cassis-laced finish. This is a highly collectible vintage to be enjoyed now or cellared through 2032.

2014 jordan cabernet

2014 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

The third in a string of exceptional vintages, the 2014 is an opulent yet elegant wine that captures the essence of Alexander Valley. This balanced, Bordeaux-style wine’s perfume of blackberries and black cherries mingles with subtle oak notes. The palate has a velvety richness that coats the mouth in concentrated flavors of blackberries and cassis, laced with fine tannins from seamlessly integrated, new French oak. Enticing flavors of chocolate, violets and dark fruits linger on the long finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2033.

2016 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

The even years in the last decade continue to impress us. Even though 2016 flaunts our hallmark silky-smooth style at an early age, this vintage has the fine tannins, intense fruit and acid backbone to live for 20-30 years in 750mL bottles. Black cherries, black currants and spice box notes carry from the aromas through the palate. The silky tannins lead to lingering black cherry notes on the long finish. Combining elegance and intensity, 2016 is a fitting vintage to celebrate 40 years of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Decant for 30 minutes if enjoying now, or cellar through 2035. **This wine does not release until May 1, 2020. It will, however, be available on pre-sale in February 2020.**

Jordan’s oldest vintage wines—especially those from the 1970s, 1980s and into the mid-`90s—are not listed for sale on Jordan’s website due to limited quantities. For current availability information, please call us at 800-654-1213 or email us, if you can’t find the wine online.

Who Drank the Most Cabernet and Chardonnay in 2019? A Jordan Winery Chart of U.S. Wine Consumption

Crunching end-of-year sales numbers is a big task for most businesses, including Jordan Winery. A few years ago, we decided to start sharing this vinous data with our fans. In the spirit of competition, here’s our latest chart of U.S. wine consumption by state, which ranks who drank the most Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon and Jordan Chardonnay in 2019. Past wine consumption reports for 2018, 2017 and 2016 follow in descending order.

How did your home state do? Did you move up or down in the rankings compared last year? One of the big winners again this year is Texas, which moved up one more spot in the most cabernet sauvignon purchased in 2019, clinching the number 2 spot. New York moved down two spots to number 4, and Pennsylvania dropped 11, so it’s time to start drinking, East Coast friends. Chardonnay did not see too much of a change at the top of the rankings from previous years, but Missouri and Utah posted the biggest gains. Observations on which states had the most significant changes are included in each ranking list, so be sure to see if your home state made a big move.

Figures included are based on total cases sold January 1-November 30 each each. (December numbers won’t be available until mid-January). Thank you for drinking Jordan and making it a great year. Raising a glass to you all in 2020!

Map of how much Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon was drank by state

Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon U.S. Wine Consumption by State 2019

Observations from the previous year: The battle for runner-up continues, with Texas ousting New York to take back the number 2 spot—which New York took from the Longhorn State in 2018. Nevada and Illinois continue to fight for sixth and seventh place, with Nevada gaining the upper hand this year. Same for Connecticut and Arizona trading the 11th and 12th rankings. Big winners for the year are Tennessee, Utah, Arkansas, Washington and Mississippi, who all jumped several spots in Jordan wine consumption. Virginia, Ohio, Oregon and Washington posted disappointing numbers compared to 2018—each dropped 3-6 spots.  Good thing our 40th anniversary vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon releases in 2020. It’s definitely one to uncork.

A Farewell Letter from Rob Davis (Jordan Winemaker, 1976-2019)

When I was hired by the brand new and unknown Jordan Winery in 1976, who knew that my six-week internship would last more than 43 years? My whole life has been well-defined by serendipity. Born to wonderful parents that provided a nice stepping stone to the University of California at Davis, I arrived at college with the plan of being pre-med but was paired with a fun-loving roommate who was majoring in enology. I had no idea that the competitive mecca for future doctors was also the home of one of the great schools for viticulture and winemaking. Friendships with fellow students, as well as professors, became eternal.

After college graduation, it was a most serendipitous moment to have met Tom and Sally Jordan, who introduced me to André Tchelistcheff, one of the most amazing persons I have ever met— someone who left a profound and everlasting imprint on my life. With more than 50 harvests of experience, André immersed me in his European approach to winemaking rather than the more conventional style that was lauded by the local critics. From the first vintage of 1976, the Jordans chose the lofty goal of a less common wine style: a style to rival the great grands crus of Bordeaux and later Burgundy. In the process of crafting the wines for Tom and Sally Jordan, as a winemaker, I was greatly challenged by the terroir of the estate fruit from our valley floor vineyard off Lytton Station Road. We prevailed in the cellar, however, and the wines were well-received. Again, serendipity presented itself in the change of command in 2005. With John Jordan’s assent to opt for vineyards with better terroir, I was in heaven. I was able to apply all those lessons I learned in the vineyard with André. In the benchlands and hills of Alexander Valley, there were promising vineyards that could produce the intense fruit flavors that would be the base of a wine that could be favorably compared to a truly great Bordeaux. I felt so lucky to have the support of John to choose all of our grape sources. I am so thankful to the Jordan family, and especially for the last 14 years, working with John and a great team of winemakers to craft wines that are lauded for their elegance and balance.

Similar to wines that age, time does not stand still. With enormous pride, I am happy to see a winemaking team that has prospered for many years, and with their advanced winemaking skills, it is time for me to allow the room for this team to continue to grow. The truth is that I feel nothing but gratitude to the Jordan family for trusting me with their winemaking for four decades. Maggie Kruse has grown into an excellent winemaker, and I fully expect the wines to be even better under her supervision. Winemakers are very control-oriented; we have to be, and after 43 years of calling the shots, it was time to embark on a new journey of learning. I felt it was important that Maggie have complete control of all the winemaking and so much of winemaking is being out with the grape growers. All the growers love Maggie, and she will become even better in the vineyards and the wines will prosper under her exacting command. Certainly, 43 years as a winemaker for one family is very rare, and the fact that Maggie worked with me for 13 years is ample experience for her to take the helm. With Maggie and her team, along with our amazing growers, Jordan wine will get even better; indeed the future is very bright for Jordan Winery. And I feel I am leaving on a very high note—2019 was perhaps the best year I witnessed for fruit that had such intensity and balance; it’s truly an extraordinary vintage.

I am reminded of an observation by the Roman poet, Horace, “When one looks into a glass of water, they see one’s own face. But when one looks into a glass of wine, they see the heart of another.” So true. My career at Jordan has brought me many wonderful friends. And the constant yearning to learn more has not waned. In departing each time on his visits to Jordan, André would remark, “Every day I learn something new, my dear Sir.” Even at 90 years old, he shared his inquisitive nature with me. Earlier this year, I was at a wine conference in Cortina, Italy, and a winemaker from Sicily enthusiastically shared two of his wines with me: one from vines grown at the base of Mt. Etna on volcanic soil, the other from a vineyard closer to the ocean on alluvial soil. With more 1,000 varieties in Italy alone, I realize how vast the wine world is. There are so many different approaches to winemaking. My next journey follows André’s many lessons and desires of obtaining more knowledge. And if you ever met André, you could never move fast enough. Whether it was racking a tank or making an amendment to a wine lot, he would say, “You just got to, Man!” And I hear his voice today. I have many places to visit and friends to see, more lessons to learn; “I just got to!”

Whenever I open a bottle of Jordan, it will always be about the memories—of the growing season, the vineyards, the growers, my team, our coworkers, colleagues and our customers. I feel so blessed with so many great memories of times with all of you. God bless you all!

Our 2019 Grape Harvest Report & Scenes from Sonoma Crush

Mother Nature certainly put on a show for the Sonoma crush of 2019. It was a growing season bookended by flooding and wildfire—neither of which had a negative impact on our vineyards but branded the 2019 vintage as truly historical. I didn’t expect my first harvest as head winemaker to be filled with such twists and turns, but I’m very excited about the 2019 wines now resting in our oak tanks. Both the chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon tanks are showstoppers. Here’s a look at the 2019 growing season, our 2019 grape harvest and my first impressions of the wines.

2019 Grape Growing Season Start

After record-breaking rainfall in the winter, a relatively cool spring followed, delaying bud break into late March and early April. With a later bud break and cool temperatures, we were on trend for a normal start time for harvest—well into September rather than the August harvest starts we experienced during the drought years. The biggest surprise early in the 2019 growing season was the two inches of rainfall in early May; this was very unseasonable for Northern California. Fortunately, many vineyards had not begun flowering due to the cool spring, so yields were not significantly impacted for chardonnay or Bordeaux varieties. With average temperatures throughout the summer, the grapes progressed very nicely.

Sacrificing Quantity for Flavor

By June, we could see that quite a heavy crop had formed, so we made an aggressive pass throughout the vineyards to drop any clusters that were falling behind their counterparts in maturity. This practice of thinning after fruit set is a sacrifice of quantity for flavor, allowing the vines to focus their energy on continuing to grow a more balanced, albeit smaller crop. In August during veraison, when the grapes start to turn color and soften, we went through each vineyard block again and dropped any clusters that were unevenly ripening and behind in maturity.

Optimal Harvest Timing for White and Red Grapes

During August vineyard visits, we noticed that our chardonnay grapes in Russian River Valley, in terms of maturity, were significantly ahead of the red grapes in Alexander Valley. Our winemaking team always prefers to harvest the majority of the chardonnay grapes before the cabernet harvest begins, so we can focus on picking and crushing the chardonnay long before dawn and turn our attention on tasting chardonnay juice and making barrel decisions. If the white and red grapes are ready to pick at the same time, we crush chardonnay at night and immediately move right into red grapes throughout the day. Some years, we get lucky where all of the chardonnay vineyards are ready to pick at the same time, and 2019 was one of those years. We began pressing the chardonnay grapes at 3 a.m. on September 12. When we tasted the first press sample of cold, crisp juice with intense fuji apple characters, we knew 2019 was going to be a great year for Jordan Chardonnay. The condition of the fruit was so beautiful with hardly any sunburn, so minimal fining was needed, and we simply let the purity of the fruit shine through. We finished the vast majority of the chardonnay pressing in six consecutive nights before the move into crushing the merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The pace of Sonoma crush 2019 was quite ideal–at first.

Mother Nature put on another show during harvest, and there was definitely a first and second act with a beautifully timed intermission, giving us time to make space in the fermentation room. Even the outside temperatures shifted dramatically in the middle of harvest. On September 25, the high was 103 degrees, and the next day, the high was only 69 degrees. Ready for Mother Nature’s second act, we began crushing merlot, the incredible fruit flavors and intensity had us all celebrating for what would be the second outstanding harvest in a row, where the weather was cooperating, the fruit tasted incredible, and the yields were above average.

A Shift in Weather During Sonoma Crush 2019

As lead winemaker for the first time during harvest, I was both grateful and incredulous as I watched the weather reports, forecasting ideal temperatures for ripening grapes with no rain in sight. As the fruit came rolling into the winery in early October, we were notified of our first red flag warning where temperatures are warm, the humidity was incredibly low and the winds are dangerously high. Power shut-offs were also announced, but our Director of Operations Tim Spence was well prepared; he and his team filled up the water tank to supply our cellar cleaning needs, purchased extra fuel for the generators and switched all winery power over to our generators. Many of our growers called to confirm we could still continue with our regularly scheduled picks, and we assured them our generator was working well and we could keep on crushing. Many wineries in Alexander Valley do not have generators with enough power to run the crush equipment, so when some wineries were forced to cancel picks, our harvest dates were moved up in order to keep the vineyard crews busy. Surprisingly, the first power outage was beneficial for Jordan’s 2019 vintage, allowing our growers to pick grapes even faster than the normal pace, since they had all crews working on our blocks.

The last of the grapes from Jordan’s 2019 crush made their way to the hopper on October 17. A few days after the commencement of harvest, we were again warned of a second planned power outage, but we already knew our generator could supply our pumps and presses with enough power, so we thought it would be business as usual. Mother Nature had other plans. On October 23, around 10 p.m., the Kincade fire started in a mountainous area several miles northeast of the winery, and the high winds quickly carried it into the heart of the Alexander Valley in Geyserville, putting many of our growers at risk. Our main concern was for the safety of the families that live on the properties, their homes and their farm animals and pets. Vineyards are a natural firebreak, so we knew the majority of the grapevines would be okay. Roads were quickly closed into Alexander Valley, but a small crew of us got around the barricade near the winery entrance before sunrise, so we could pump the tanks over and immediately close the tank lids to protect them from any smoke that would move toward Healdsburg. Even though the fire was still six miles from the winery and the wind was blowing from east to west, we couldn’t keep the ambient smoke from entering the cellar, so we were judicious about limiting the time each tank was open to ensure that smoke did not get into the tanks and taint the wine.

A few days later, there was another high wind advisory, and winds were expected to be even higher than before. With a fire still burning in the rural mountains of Alexander Valley, authorities took no risks, and a mandatory evacuation was issued for all of Geyserville, Healdsburg and Windsor. Jordan Winery and the Jordan family residences were now in the evacuation zone. These are all towns are where the majority of our employees live, including myself. We all evacuated to different areas in the Bay Area—John Jordan and I were both at different hotels in San Francisco—but Tim Spence and his family decided to stay on property (while evacuated from their Windsor home). He kept the generators running and assisted first responders, giving them a place to rest and showing them the lake and the different private roads on the property that could aid in fighting wildfires. The first night was a nail-biter, as the fire threw embers all the way to West Soda Rock Lane, a dirt road that borders Jordan Estate to the east, but the firefighters fought back, and the fire continued to burn southeast, never reaching Jordan or the town of Healdsburg. (Read John Jordan’s blog about the harrowing week of the Kincade fire.)

Desperately Seeking Pump-Overs

Evacuated with my family, I grew incredibly anxious. I knew we had done everything we could to avoid smoke taint in the wines, but we had two actively fermenting tanks that were in serious need of a pump-over to cool down the cap and blow off carbon dioxide—the byproduct of fermentation. Tim offered to help pump-over the tanks, and I was so grateful. We spoke on the phone and went over the quick logistics of how to conduct a pump-over, which Tim had watched a million times during his three decades working at Jordan, but never had done one himself. When Tim texted me that both tanks had been pumped-over, I replied, “How did they smell?” Tim’s response? “Delicious.” That was all I needed to hear! After three days of being glued to my iPhone while Tim pumped the tanks over for winemaking, I was able to obtain an agricultural pass for four of us to enter the evacuation zone and return to the winery: assistant winemaker John Duckett, our South African intern, cellar worker Dennis Luz and me. When we arrived at the winery, I quickly went through all of the tanks and assessed them, and they all smelled fantastic, albeit in desperate need of a pump-over. A day later, the mandatory evacuations were lifted, and our incredible cellar team returned to work and began pressing non-stop until we finished.

The 2019 vintage was quite the baptism for my first year as lead winemaker; it will definitely be a harvest I will never forget for many reasons, but when I think of the vintage as a whole, I can’t help but smile with a great sense of relief. I am relieved that our growers are safe with minimal damage to their properties. I am relieved that I have my first harvest as lead winemaker under my belt, and most importantly, I am relieved the wines are absolutely delicious.
