Juslyn Vineyards Spring Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
|Appellation||Spring Mountain District|
Wine AdvocateThe 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain Estate offers an attractive but restrained bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rocks, subtle oak, and background cherry scents. A superb, elegant example of what can be achieved in California, it possesses a Bordeaux-like personality superimposed upon the wonderful ripeness and purity of Napa Valley mountainside fruit. This beautifully made, structured Cabernet will benefit from 2-4 more years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.
Wine EnthusiastCedar, chocolate and cassis abound in this surprisingly smooth and creamy mountain Cabernet. Immediately approachable because of its supple texture, yet firms up on the finish, suggesting midterm (5-8 years) aging potential.
