2014 Juslyn Vineyards Perry’s Blend
2014 Juslyn Vineyards Perry’s Blend Deep garnet-purple in color, the Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain leaps from the glass with exuberant black cherries, mulberries and cassis plus violets, chocolate mint, underbrush and cigar box with wafts of tapenade and lavender. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and decadent, the palate is packed with perfumed black fruits with a fine-grained frame, finishing long and minerally.
Juslyn Vineyards, owned by Perry and Carolyn Butler, is located in the prestigious Spring Mountain District AVA, one of the highest regarded mountain appellations in the Napa Valley. The British ex-pats arrived in California in the 1980’s as high-tech pioneers and founded a 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.
Since then, there has been no turning back. Perry and Carolyn have committed to making the best wines possible in the heart of Napa Valley’s acclaimed Spring Mountain District.
Developing our vineyards in the rocky soils of Spring Mountain proved that wine was truly our labor of love. We replanted our Estate to a field blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.In 2001, we were able to produce 170 cases of wine that displayed elegance in the style of premier cru Bordeaux. Each Estate vintage thereafter has been more productive, and, now, with over 18 years of vine maturation we benefit with 3 tons/acre from our 8-acre hillside vineyard. Every vintage becomes more exciting as we experience firsthand the future of Juslyn right here at home.
