Juslyn Vineyards Perry's Blend Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Robert Parker: The 2007 Perry's Blend (42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all from the estate vineyards on Spring Mountain) exhibits tremendous aromas of flowers, blue, red and black fruits, graphite and forest floor. Elegant yet powerful, rich, concentrated, pure and impeccably well-balanced, it reminds me of a hypothetical blend of a Bordeaux and a cool climate, Cabernet-based red from Napa. Drink it over the next 15+ years. (Dec 2010)

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.

Smoky and toasty on the nose with jammy red currant fruits accented by dried green pepper, earth, tobacco and a light butterscotch tone. Very light on entry with a nice spicy background tone as the tannins creep up on the palate. The fruit with its light plum and shaved chocolate tones add a nice level to the red and black currant topped palate. The finish is a bit short but this is fresh and well balanced and showing a nice elegant, slightly Bordelaise style. Slowly seductive and holds its alcohol well. 90pts
