Our very first vintage of Merlot from our estate. Planted in 1997 along with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, these vines have matured beautifully to produce a perfectly balanced, fruit forward and mouth filling wine.  We are super excited to hear what you think!

 

The 2012 Merlot from Juslyn shocked me with its richness and concentration. Coming entirely from their Spring Mountain estate, the final blend is 87% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc. They only made 150 cases, aged it nearly 30 months in three-fourths new French oak, but they have certainly produced a winner. Deep ruby/purple, with a bright, vibrant, gorgeous nose of espresso, mocha, white chocolate, black cherries and darker currants, the wine has velvety tannins, a supple, rather fleshy, succulent mouthfeel, and a juicy, plush texture. This is irresistible wine should continue to drink well for at least another decade or more.  93 points
