The fruit that produces this wine is 100% estate grown on Juslyn's Spring Mountain vineyards. The wine is sophisticated, powerful, and nuanced. This is a great wine for fans of Bordeaux and upper-echelon Napa Cabs. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. 300 cases produced.
Despite the high quality wines emerging from Juslyn, this estate remains under most consumers’ radar. Proprietors Carolyn and Perry Butler produce mostly estate-bottled wines from their vineyard holdings.. - Robert M. Parker, Jr. “The Best of Northern California” - Issue #209 October 2013
In 1997, their dream became a reality when Perry and Carolyn Butler 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 off in 2000, when they were able to harvest their estate for the first time to produce 80 cases of Spring Mountain cabernet sauvignon.More from this winery
