In the second half I’ll be talking to my friends at Jordan Vineyards and winery about the current release Cabernet and Chardonnay from this great winery. I’ll also have a bottle of Jordan’s Estate produced Extra Virgin Olive Oil…a great gift idea for the food lovers on your holiday list.
Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2011 Jordan Chardonnay
A combination of night-harvested Russian River Valley grapes, French oak aging and old-world winemaking techniques create a balanced white wine defined by purity of stone fruit flavors, vibrant acidity and a succulent finish that makes you want to take another sip. Not a typical California Chardonnay, Jordan is harmoniously balanced to pair with a broad range of foods.
2009 Jordan Cabernet
This vintage is a dream come true for Winemaker Rob Davis, combining both an excellent growing season and our new direction with fruit sourcing. Visually stunning with a deep garnet-ruby hue, this wine possesses an unprecedented elegance of fruit expression, lively acidity, tannin structure and oak integration. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. Enjoy now or cellar through 2025.
