Juslyn 2000 Napa Valley Vineyard Select Cabernet Sauvignon
92 Points

"...Their 2000 is tight and sophisticated when first poured; it could be the West Coast equivalent of a Graves, here giving a sense of gravel and sagebrush. It feels narrow in scope, yet satisfying and generous. Tasted a day later, the wine has developed the beauty of its form with air, the flavor luscious as a fresh plum, the texture elegant. A lovely, gentle side of Napa cabernet, built for the cellar."

2000 Vineyard Select Cabernet Sauvignon - 90 Points
"A lighter style of Cab, with pretty black cherry, blackberry and herb flavors and softly sweet tannins. Notable for its balance and harmony, this elegant wine will support, not overwhelm fine food."
Wine Enthusiast, April 2004.

2000 Juslyn Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select: 88 Points
A successful offering, the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select reveals surprisingly supple tannin, a soft underbelly, and a nicely perfumed nose of red and black fruits, licorice, vanilla, and spice box. This mediumbodied, elegant 2000 is best consumed over the next 7-8 years.
