Jordan, Alexander Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon 1985 (1.5L)
Jordan Vineyard and Winery is based in Healdsburg in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County. It was founded in 1972 and makes just two wines: a Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and a Chardonnay from Russian River. From start to finish, this expression of Jordan Estate Alexander Valley fruit clearly displays characteristics of a slowly and carefully aged wine.From the winery
The gorgeous weather in Alexander Valley in 1985 produced ripe, rich and fleshy Cabernet Sauvignons with superb balance.

Though still a beauty on many levels, the 1985 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon is finally showing its age. Bottles stored under best conditions show mature flavors of dried red fruit, leather and earth with some hints of caramel.

I have had a lot of bottles of the 85 Jordan. Even with Rob Davis the wine maker. I first had this wine 20 years ago. At that time it was soooo good I had to call a friend to share it. I couldn't drink it by myself. 20 years later it is still sooo good but definitely 20 years older. It is just wonderful but I love old low alcahol wines. Would you like it? Probably not if you are a milllenial. The new generation loves new wine. I am 71 and I prefer old wine. This is a superb wine. Made in the shadow of the Master Andre Tchelistchef. Balance is all things and ALSO cleanliness of the process including the barrels. This is JORDAN. Bravo. 11/14/2018
