Juslyn 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain Estate

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a dollop of Petit Verdot) reveals great fruit, but is more structured, tannic and reserved than the 2009, no doubt because it is a year younger. It reveals lots of graphite, forest floor, black currants, blueberries, and the tell-tale smell of violets that come from the Spring Mountain AVA. Despite the high quality wines emerging from Juslyn, this estate remains under most consumers’ radar.” – Robert Parker [+]
