Mission Briefing

Codename:

True Elevation

Wow, wow, wow! Today’s Juslyn Vineyard Company 2008 Spring Mountain District Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a truly stunning wine that is a near-perfect high-elevation Cabernet.

The depth of the fruit notes on today’s wine immediately grabbed our attention. As opposed to fresh or reduced fruit notes, today’s wine has a deliciously unique hint of pan fried plum and blackberry - slightly roasted with just a touch of darker, sweeter caramelization.

At over 50% off today’s 96 Pt. (Parker) Napa Cab, you know deals like this don’t come around too often. Be sure to act fast!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, foreboding crimson, with shoots of deep purple through and through.

Smell:

Deliciously bold and richly layered, with rich high-elevation fruit notes of dark black cherry and Santa Rosa plum joining lavender, gravelly minerals, sweet tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, and fresh rosemary.

Taste:

Simply put, stunning. A very serious, and seriously delicious, tasting profile, with pan fried sweet plum and blackberry mingling with sweet tobacco leaf, sandalwood, lightly roasted coffee bean, and cocoa powder.

Finish:

Best decanted, today’s wine is a true high-elevation stunner. The silken finish is highlighted by fantastic structure and a lingering note of minerals.

Pairing:

Porcini and rosemary encrusted beef tenderloin, served with port wine sauce.
