To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon in 2016, the winery produced 18-liter Melchiors for the first time, filled with the legendary 2012 vintage. These rare bottles were offered exclusively to select restaurants across the country.

This special offer has become a yearly tradition, and in 2019, the Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Melchior from the celebrated 2015 vintage debuts.

The Story

Filled, etched, numbered and painted by hand, only eight of these 18-liter bottles were produced for sale this year, designed to delight your guests with an impressive display and promotional pouring opportunity that cannot be missed. Only one bottle will be made available to a select restaurant in each region of the country to ensure exclusivity for each account.

The locations across the country offering a taste of the Jordan Melchior are featured in a national and regional promotional program, Le Tour de Melchior, with myriad publicity and social media exposure opportunities and resources.

The Wine

The first classic Cabernet Sauvignon in our history aged entirely in French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES: Pure elegance in a glass. Aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak’s fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through.

VINTAGE NOTES: The last grapes were crushed on September 28, making our 40th vintage one of the earliest-finishing harvests in Jordan’s history. Bud break was early with dry spring days followed by unusually cool weather in May. Dry weather continued with a few heat spikes in September. Despite the lower yields, this wine is rich with a concentration of tannin provided by this vintage’s uniquely small berries.
