Worthy of 5 stars!
Initially the tasting notes from Wine Access said to Drink now or age 5-7 years. Well after laying down for 8 years this Cab is still a terrific, wine with abundant tannins, a robust body and a fininsh that declares, you can enjoy me more into the future! This wine is rich and concentrated on the palate, still incredibly youthful and brilliant.
I brought this wine to a dinner with two other wine enthusiasts- after opening for 45 minutes, we all agreed it topped the other wines that night. Food friendly, but able to stand-up to on it's own with dessert, nuts or cheese. A winner!
Wish I had ordered a case! Terrific wine on par with many I've had at 2x the cost.
Full of Flavor, good finish, not heavy
This is a full flavored wine with a somewhat lengthy finish, but it is not too heavy or inky. Very good.
perfect example of a power cab
Tokalon vineyard says it all. it was great. this is a ready to drink, must drink!
Probably the best wine I have gotten through Wine Access. Tremendous nose of dark fruit, mint, and licorice. Dark fruit on the palate with a great finish. Lots of structure, will last 15 years easy.
Rocked the house
Heavy Oak on the nose, but not on the uptake. This wine has a wonderful flavor and a smooth finish. Huge notes of blackberries and fruit. Ready to drink and enjoy now.
Beautiful deep inky red, very full-bodied, with great intensity as well as tremendous purity, it offers up provocative, enticing aromas of smoke interwoven with lavish quantities of black currant fruit, licorice and cedar. Rich and textured, with sweet fruit, and ripe, well-integrated tannin
Great nose, nice, not over-bearing tannins, lingering finish.
Juslyn Cabernet A Delicious Surprise
While I don't always agree with Robert Parker, I find this 2002 Juslyn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet to be very good, in fact delicious. I wish I had purchased more. Perhaps I should not have waited five months before tasting it!
We shared two bottles of the 02 Juslyn Cab and feel it stands up w those costing twice and more.
Full bodied, great nose, smooth and would gladly reorder a case next time
Juslyn jus' fine
Rich and supple in the mouth. Bouquet a bit withdrawn now.
Needs another year or two to relax and show itself.
A very enjoyable mouthwatering mouthful of dark deep silky fruit. Great with a dry aged Chateau Briand.
Better Cabs for the money
This wine at first tasted mediocre and had a little bite. Somewhat dissappointing. It opened up after a 1/2 hour to be more acceptable but never met my expectations for the write up. I've had better Cabs for the price but still in all is a decent wine.
This is a nice, complex layered wine. Very balanced. Nice concentrated dark fruits, a little tobacco and hint of licorice with sweet finish. Glad I bought a case.
