Juslyn Spring Mountain Estate 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The impressive 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate may equal, if not eclipse, the beautiful 2002 made from the estate vineyards. The 2003 is our fourth year making wine from our estate on Spring Mountain. The vineyards are impossibly steep and rocky and the southeastern exposure is ideal for ripening the tiny clusters. Flavors of black cherry, cassis and anise are framed by French oak creating a lingering silky finish.

When British ex-patriots Perry and Carolyn Butler moved to California in 1982, they never dreamed they would own 42 acres of prime vineyard land in the heart of Napa Valley. They arrived in California as high-tech pioneers and founded their own computer company in the San Francisco Bay area. After routine 80-hour work weeks, the couple relaxed during weekend trips to Napa Valley, where they were bitten by the wine bug. Dreams of high-tech dominance soon turned to thoughts of returning to the land and grape growing. In 1997, their dream became a reality when Perry and Carolyn sold their computer business and founded Juslyn Vineyards on a site overlooking the renowned Spring Mountain Winery. (The name, Juslyn, is derived from the names, Justine-the Butlers' daughter-and Carolyn.) In 1998, they made their first vintage of Juslyn from grapes purchased from Andy Beckstoffer as they waited patiently for their own vines to mature. Their patience paid in 2000, when they were able to harvest their estate for the first time to produce 80 cases of Spring Mountain cabernet sauvignon. Since then, there has been no turning back. Perry and Carolyn have committed to making the best wine possible in the heart of Napa Valley's acclaimed Spring Mountain District. Having received 90+points from accredited publications like Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (December 2003) and Wine and Spirits Magazine (August 2004), the Butler's are proving that they are on the path of success and truly living the American dream.

Musky and floral on the nose with plummy black fruit. Soft and supple in the mouth with rich plummy fruit covering tannins that are a bit austere. There ‘s a nice layer of coffee over the dark fruit on the modest finish and an iron note on the finale. This is drinking well due to the fruit but I would opt to drink this sooner rather than later since the tannins seem a bit aggressive. 88pts

Great, great Napa Cab. Has aged well. Is out of stock, but our local store nabbed some at discount and I am spending my anticipated 2009 tax return on the lot of it. Yummm If you can score it.. do it.

Picked up a bottle to give it a try, and loved it! Went back and got 6 more to age for another year or two!
