Jordan has been family owned and operated since 1972. The winery runs almost entirely on solar energy, and their vineyards and winery are certified sustainable. Since 2012, a large portion of the profits from Jordan Winery fund The John Jordan Foundation, which works to fight the negative effects of poverty in communities through education and health services.
Combining the artistry of the old world with the technology of the new, the Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is blended in the tradition of Bordeaux. The soft, round tannins and understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characters to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, boysenberries, blueberries, aromatic flowers with a touch of vanilla, coconut, spice, and cedar. The medium body will not overpower most food but will pair well with steak, herb-crusted lamb, roasted chicken or grilled pork loin. It's approachable now or worthy of cellaring for at least 10–15 years.
