Rich aromas of ripe black cherry, Mission fig and dark chocolate mingle with a spice box of clove and nutmeg. The palate is filled with flavors of juicy blackberry and boysenberry that are enveloped in silky tannins, showing complexity beyond its years. Enticing flavors of fresh vanilla bean and hazelnut carry through a velvety richness that lingers on the finish. Enjoy now after decanting for 45 minutes or cellar through 2038.

Tom Jordan first released his namesake wines in 1976 with the idea to make world-class Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons grown in the iconic Sonoma wine region. Forty years later they're still going strong with son John keeping an eye on things from vintage to vintage. The legacy winery's success has to be more than just chance as John was born the very same day that John and Sally Jordan signed the deed to their first parcel of Alexander Valley land. Ever ecologically minded, they practice sustainability in the winery, the vineyards and across their entire estate and have even dedicated three quarters of their estate to natural habitat. They continue to recognize that what is good for the land is ultimately good for the wine. Some things are meant to last and these guys are more than sustaining, they're thriving and we expect many excellent vintages for many years to come.
