Juslyn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District Vineyard Select 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

92+ points Robert Parker: The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select originates from purchased fruit, primarily Beckstoffer-owned vineyards such as To-Kalon. There are approximately 800 cases of this wine. The 2004 exhibits wonderful elegant, almost Pauillac-like notes of cedar, spice box, black currant, and a hint of underbrush. The wine has soft tannins, medium to full body, ripe fruit, but beautiful balance and overall symmetry. This is an elegant but substantial wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. (Dec 2007)

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.

I am really enjoying this wine - lighter in color than you would think for a cab - rich fruit without being over powering - seems a bit light in flavor though for a really good cab but we paid $45 for it and that makes it worth it - $80 would be a bit much since I expect a little deeper richer wine for the $80 price - excellent finish and feels great in the mouth with no acidity

Medium light in color. Some cranberry colored edges. The nose has some red cherries and a bright cassis and floral notes. The palate reveals some soft fruits of red cherries, raspberries, and pomegranate. Lots of pomegranate. Nice mouth feel and a slightly pronounced acid level make this seem very bright and airy. (There goes that word again: bright). The 3% cab franc is evident in the nose as well s the finish. 94% Oakville fruit with the alance being from Spring Mountain. Strangely, this reminds me very much of a Spring Mountain wine. Possibly the mountain fruit taking over more than the proportions would suggest? Very 'Bordeaux' in style, I can see lovers of big bold cabs not finding this too interesting, but is surely has a place in my cellar and on my table.
