Juslyn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountian United States California Napa County Spring Mountain District Red 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Black currant, vanilla, tobacco, and spicy, cedary oak on the nose. This opens with a sweet entry and follows through with a rather voluptuous feel. A rich wine, still a little youthfully chewy with rich black cherry fruit that yields to noticeable oak spice and vanilla on the moderately long finish with a hint of herb on the finale. 91pts

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.

Tar and black pepper hit the nose real hard, but this wine in still delightfully smooth. The finish is full of cherry, plum and tart flavors. This is a beautiful wine.
