    Sbrocco Sips: 10.6.22

    By Leslie Sbrocco–

    2018 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California $60

    When talking about California classics, Jordan ranks among my top-tier list of producers. Since 1972, they have consistently produced not only world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but also have proven to be one of the best spots to visit in the world of wine.

    A tour to this northern Sonoma winery can range from seated tastings on the terrace to an exploration of their 1,200-acre estate, and delectable culinary offerings that make a statement. The best place, however, to begin any Jordan journey is by sipping their iconic Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 bottling is stunning. Exploding with herbal and smoky aromas, its sultry texture is saturated with dark berry flavors and silky smoothness. This is a wine to enjoy now or cellar for up to a decade.
