93pts, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Sporting a deep garnet-purple color and nose of black currant cordial, dark chocolate and blackberry pie with hints of bay leaves, damp soil and pepper, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain is full and concentrated on the rich palate, with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and savory.

93pt Spring Mountain Napa Cabernet, nearly 50% off, is the name of the Invino game today! Yes indeed! This is a wine for the collectors and aficionados who love a big, grippy wine and have some patience to allow it to evolve over a few more years (in which case we’re certain it will be trading for much higher $$$ if stored properly).

Robert Parker called Juslyn Wines "brilliant examples of elegant Bordeaux-styled Cabernets, with freshness, outstanding aging potential, and beautiful purity and depth.”

They somehow are still a fairly under the radar producer tucked away in the bucolic high elevation vineyards of Spring Mountain, but hey, we’re in the know and therefore you are too if you weren’t already! The wine has lots of power, richness and depth — it oozes Napa Mountain Cabernet in the best ways possible. Classic notes of cassis, bay leaf, dark chocolate, blackberry pie, pepper and mocha, tobacco, earth, licorice, there’s lots going on, and on and on with its robust finish too. Just YUM.

Collectors, you gotta have it. $89, complimentary shipping on 3 bottles, 93pts!

TASTING NOTES 

Classic notes of cassis, bay leaf, dark chocolate, blackberry pie, pepper and mocha, tobacco, earth, licorice with firm tannins, a fully body, and a long, pleasant finish.

THE STORY TO KNOW

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.
