Beautiful claret. Fruity and silky. Seamless.
Reminds of the 2001 Pontet Canet. Wish I had more!
Just as advertised
Flavors exactly as advertised. Very smooth wine, ready to drink now.
2001 Juslyn Cab
Bing Cherry red appearance with a cherry vanilla nose. big fruit flavors with oaky component and nice oaky finish. Second glass more exciting then the first glass after decanting for several hours. Could use a few more years in the cellar.

Very nice wine, but don't hold on to it long.
some bottle variation
superb intergration of fruit and tanins, great balance,nice long finish.Will age nicely for many more years but wonderful when i had it earlier this month.Some bottle variation in my case but generally a delight
A super smooth, polished wine. Very elegant with velvety mouth-feel and a wisp of tobacco. Great sipper but marvelous with roast pork or duck. Very food friendly.
Spring Hill Start up
A 2001 that could use more bottle aging. A bit tight when opened, with sharp flavors of cherry and a little pepper. Needs to be decanted in 2010.
I am always looking for the good wine that is underpriced. Juslyn was thin, but should age well and I am confident the next bottle will be better-89 for the money I won't buy any more but am not dissappointed. It was worth what it cost but did not have any WOW! factor.
2001 Juslyn Vineyards Cabernet
Of 12 ordered, 3 have been used. 1 was very nice, probably a 3 - 4 star wine, but two of the bottles had bad corks and the wine had gone bad. Not ready to call foul just yet, but if the next bottle is bad as well, then I will be very disappointed.
Hope others had better luck...
Bought 6 bottles, first three were corked... I'll open the other 3 whenever I'm feeling lucky. Only reason it gets one star is for the stellar customer service from WA.

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
