2001 Juslyn Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select: 91 Points
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select is superior from bottle than it was from cask. A wine of balance an impeccable purity, it represents a California version of a fictional blend of a top-notch Pauillac and St.-Julien. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of black currants, earth, tobacco leaf, licorice, and plums, a sweet attack, a pure mid-section, and a medium to full-bodied, persistent finish displaying faultless harmony. It will drink well for 15 years.

2001 Juslyn Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select: 89-91 Points
A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc, the elegant 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Select comes across as a stylish Bordeaux, with notes of tobacco leaf, licorice, cedar, and black currants. Medium to full-bodied with a sweet attack, ripe fruit, and a long, moderately tannic finish, this beauty has the potential to be outstanding if it gets into the bottle without too much clarification. It should drink well for 10-12 years.
