Judy Jordan, Founder and President of J Vineyards & Winery and second generation vintner, chose to honor her family's heritage with a courageous and different path. Respecting her family and the Jordan Winery, Judy decided as a young woman to build her own brand and winery.
In 1986, Judy started what is now called J Vineyards & Winery. With her typical joie de vivre, she began weaving the vines of tradition and elegance with those of contemporary innovation to build an elegant winery of her own. In 1996, Judy purchased the former Piper Sonoma winemaking facility in Healdsburg, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. In 1999 Judy was one of the first, if not the first, to pioneer wine country's elegant food and wine experience for visitors in its tasting room.
Judy Jordan built and expanded J Vineyards & Winery with green practices in mind since the beginning. J is dedicated to sustainable winemaking that encompasses a long term sensitivity to the needs of the ecosystem. J supports farming practices that are environmentally sensitive, economically viable and socially responsible by minimal use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers in our vineyards.
On the nose, bing cherry and plum aromas rush from the glass, with secondary aromas of spices and flowers, along with vanilla from the oak aging. The palate echoes the aromas, with deep concentrated fruit flavors leading the way. The finish is full, long and silky.
The pale to medium ruby-purple colored Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was aged for nine months in 38% new French oak. It sings of violets, black tea and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of cranberries, redcurrants and underbrush with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, elegant and wonderfully perfumed in the mouth, it has a finely grained texture and a long, nuanced finish. 18,000 cases produced.
