Selection:
" The 2019 harvest was my first official vintage as head winemaker, and I couldn't have asked
for a more beautifully balanced and challenging growing season for Jordan Cabernet. In
2019, we had a rainy spring and moderate summer that resulted in a structured, concentrated
and elegant final blend. I'm loving how seamlessly the tannins have integrated after aging
two years in bottle and can't wait to see how this wine continues to evolve for years to come. "
-Maggie Kruse, winemaker
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Intense aromas of ripe black cherry, graphite and blackberry interlace with
a lovely violet floral note. The palate is inviting and well balanced, exuding
flavors of blueberries, cassis and boysenberry that are all beautifully
interwoven with silky tannins from the French oak barrels. The dark fruit
flavors and delicate acidity evolve beautifully in the glass and linger on the
palate. Enjoy now after decanting for 30 minutes or cellar through 2039.
Chef's Pairing Suggestions
The dark fruit flavors, silky palate and beautiful structure make it a decadent
wine for food pairing. This wine's elegance, acidity and spice notes complement
grilled or roasted dishes, such as coq au vin, lamb ragu or roasted salmon with
miso. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon's earthiness even complements vegetarian
dishes, such as roasted vegetables, mushroom risotto and ratatouille.
Post malolactic fermentation, individual
lots were blind tasted and ranked, then
assembled into our " barrel blend. " After
one year in barrels, the " barrel blend " was
reassessed and only top lots were combined
for the final master blend.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Beautiful aromas of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and citrus blossom jump right
out of the glass. With anticipation, the first sip is just as opulent, bright and
alive as the aromatics. Flavors of citrus, Asian pear and lemon peel balance
seamlessly with the subtle French oak notes-all supported by uplifting
acidity. Enjoy now or cellar through 2031.
Chef's Pairing Suggestions
With its brightness and lively citrus elements, the 2021 Jordan Chardonnay
makes a wonderful aperitif and is also a versatile food pairing wine. Unlike
many fuller-bodied chardonnays, Jordan Chardonnay creates a nice contrast
of flavors with seafood such as salmon or oysters. It also has the structure and
balance to pair beautifully with spicy Asian dishes and even heavier dishes
like a porchetta.
" The 2021 vintage was a winemaker's dream. It was another year of low rainfall,
and the growing season was generally cooler with no significant heat spikes.
The mild season and introduction of new vineyard sites in the western Russian
River Valley resulted in extended hang-time and allowed the fruit to develop
more concentration. The 2021 is one of the most balanced Chardonnays we've
ever made and has a rich minerality that will age beautifully. "
-Maggie Kruse, winemaker
2021 CHARDONNAY
Russian River Valley
Harvest Dates:
September 7-September 20, 2021
Vineyards:
18 vineyard blocks from seven growers
Fermentation:
Clusters destemmed and gently pressed at
night to extract freshness and acidity while
avoiding astringent phenolic character from
the skins. Inoculated and fermented 11 days
in 51% new French oak barrels and 49% in
stainless steel tanks. B√Ętonnage was limited
to six weeks and malolactic fermentation to
14% to ensure that aromas were not masked
by a buttery component.
Sur Lie:
Four months of sur lie aging (in both
stainless steel and barrel) to bring a touch
of creaminess to the mid-palate.
Cooperages:
French oak barrels from five coopers
were chosen based on grain tightness,
low tannin potential and light toast
levels, allowing for the purity of the
fruit to shine.
Aging:
5.5 months in 100% new French oak barrels
Varietal:
100% chardonnay
Appellation:
100% Russian River Valley
Final Analysis:
Alcohol: 13.7%; T.A.: 0.74 g/100mL;

Bottling Dates:
