Juslyn Vineyards Spring Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
|Appellation||Spring Mountain District|
Wine EnthusiastA big, dense, sturdy wine, rich in tannins and with the structure to age. It's rather muted now, but buried deep is a solid core of blackberry, cassis, herb and olive flavors that turn up on the finish. Best after 2006.
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain possesses good density as well as richness, but elevated tannin, medium body, and a certain angularity. It comes across like a young Bordeaux from a lean year, which may not be a compliment in California. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the aromas and flavors, but not the austerity. We'll see how it ages, but it appears to be somewhat of a gamble.
