Sonoma Cabernets have always sat in the shadow of their Napa brethren, but for those who seek out a less ostentatious, Left Bank style Cabernet that speaks more to elegance and charm than bombast and power, there really is nothing like it. Jordan hits that sweet spot for an affordable but classically styled Cabernet, and 2014 was a gorgeous vintage for this kind of quintessential approach.
A real Cab-lovers Cabernet, the 2014 Jordan is “very appetising and a real tribute to the drinker not the winemaker” (Jancis Robinson). Sourced from estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley, Jordan has built a reputation over the past four decades for complex, food friendly wines that thanks to their affordability and structure are favorites of restaurant wine lists.
While your Napa Cabs are slumbering in the back of the cellar, try opening a 2014 Jordan - its charming and approachable personality certainly can age over the next decade, but it’s so tasty now, why wait? Cheers!
