“As proprietors Perry and Carolyn Butler move toward virtually all estate fruit from their 42 acres on the slopes of Spring Mountain, the quality of their wines has increased dramatically. Juslyn has been a solid performer for many years, but the most recent vintages exhibit a profound rise in quality, yet prices remain realistic for high end Napa wines.”
Robert M. Parker, Jr. “The Best of Northern California” - Issue 180, December 2008

2008 Spring Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain Estate (94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot) offers aromas of sweet blueberries and black currants intermixed with floral and crushed rock-like notes. Very cool climate in its mountain style, yet dense, rich, multilayered and long with sweet tannin, it will be drinkable early in life and last for 15-20 years.
93-96 points, Robert Parker., Jr.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon flows across the palate with dark red fruit, licorice, spices and savory herbs. This delicate, understated Cabernet shows terrific balance in an understated, mid-weight personality. Structurally appears to be a wine to drink over the medium-term. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. 91 points, Antonio Galloni
