Founded 1972, Tom & Sally Jordan, from CO, went to CA’s wine country & produced inaugural vintage in 1976. A Fav of mine with a steak, and the ‘17 hits the mark! Blend of mostly Cab Sauv with Merlot, Petit Verdot & Malbec. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruit, floral & spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, blackberry and fig with oak, sweet spice, leather & cacao notes. Rich tannins, well balanced and integrated with fruit & oak. Very Nice!

Very nice. Crisp and balanced. Constrained fruit.

Meh. Fruity. Odd. Not at all what I would have expected.

Very unique cab, maybe because I don’t get to try a lot of Sonoma/Alexander Valley cabs. This one is almost medium bodied, almost austere, plenty of red fruit. Very delicious. Closer to a good Chianti than a big cab. I am intrigued.

I held on to this for to long. Wines a little flat.

A gift from a friend, this wine was surprisingly nice. On night 1 it was simple and quaffable. But in night 2 it got more detailed, with olive and cassis, along with cigar box on the nose. In the mouth it’s showing slightly herby, olivey red fruit. Nice balance, with medium body. A good solid weekday dinner wine.
