Jordan Wine Country Table - Vol. 14, 2019 - 7

WELCOME
Letter from Rob Davis
Moments of pure joy come to both wine grower and winemaker when they share a vintage that is
plentiful and absolutely delicious. There's sensory overload at the hopper-the winemaker breathes in
the heavenly scents while the grower driving the truck is smiling with confidence that he will be able
to pay his bills for another year. It's a good day for both " tank and bank. "
Vintages that combine quantity and quality are very rare,
but as we rack and blend our 2018 wines into French
oak barrels, I can say that I have nothing but great news
about 2018. It's a vintage of phenomenal flavor and
personality that we can't wait to share with you in the
coming years. My vintage report on page 8 dives into
the four factors that sculpted 2018 into an incredible
year for both chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.
Mother Nature hosted quite the party last year.
After a fun-filled harvest, 2019 arrives just in time for
the release of the 2015 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon-a
wine I have dreamed of making since John Jordan
took the reins in 2005. It is truly the culmination of our
relentless effort to make every vintage better than the
last by fine-tuning our vineyard selections, blends and
barrel-aging regime. The 2015 Jordan is the fourth
in a string of simply incredible vintages. I've called
2012-2013-2014 the best trio of cabernet years in a
century. For the first time in 43 years of winemaking,
Jordan has a quartet of consecutive vintages that sing
like none before.
Our latest magnum offering hails from the phenomenal
2013 harvest-another vintage that defied the odds
after the incredible 2012 vintage. The 2013 Jordan
Cabernet Sauvignon channels the Pauillac style in
Bordeaux, combining concentrated, dark fruit with
a firm but velvety structure and a backbone of
acidity that makes this a great wine for aging in largeformat
bottles.
The 2017 Jordan Chardonnay also makes its debut-a
vibrant wine that has dazzled us with its fruit intensity
and bright acidity, defying the odds in a vintage
defined by record-breaking rain, sustained heat and
horrific wind that intensified fires across the North
Coast. Russian River Valley, historically noted for its
apple industry, is now better remembered for the
apple fruit the wine imbiber " bites " into with a glass
of our Jordan Chardonnay: vivid, mouth-watering and
refreshing. Read more about all of these new releases
on page 40.
2019 marks the 14th
year of John Jordan's impact
on Jordan Winery. Akin to an Olympic high jumper,
John continues to raise the bar for all of us. After
resting up from my 43rd
harvest, I can honestly say
that the winemakers I work alongside are continually
motivated to exceed what we have achieved
in the past. The energy that flows through our
team is magnetic. I invite you to walk the steps to our
winery and dance to our beat.
I would love to hear your thoughts on our newest
vintages. Feel free to leave a comment on our Facebook
page or send me an email to rdavis@jordanwinery.com.
Cheers,
Rob Davis, Winemaker
