"Developing our vineyards in the rocky soils of Spring Mountain proved that wine was truly our labor of love. After replanting our Estate to a field blend of 90% cabernet sauvignon with small amounts of merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot (for color) in 1997, we achieved our first Estate Cabernet release of just 80 cases in 2000. In 2001, we were able to increase the production to 170 cases of wine that displays elegance in the style of premier cru Bordeaux. Each Estate vintage thereafter has been more productive, and, now, 10 years of vine maturation benefits us with about 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." —winemaker
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot) reveals great fruit, but it 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 comes from the Spring Mountain AVA. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20+ years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is another wine that vividly captures the essence of the year. Expressive, floral aromatics meld into a layered core of fruit as this large-scaled, structured Cabernet Sauvignon opens up in the glass. There is an implosive, mineral-drenched quality to the 2010 that is a wonder to behold. Hints of mocha, spice, chocolate and menthol add breadth on the expressive, intensely saline finish. I can't wait to taste the 2010 in another year, once it has had a chance to come together even more fully. The 2010 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." —Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
