98 Points Parker - rare
One of Napa Valley's most collectible Cabernets. Extremely limited.
98 Points Robert Parker: "Bryant’s flagship wine, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill offers a rare but magnificent forest floor/floral aromatic profile with lavishly rich, ripe notes of crème de cassis, blueberry and black raspberry liqueur. Fleshy, opulent, full-bodied and multidimensional, it conceals some significant tannins behind its wealth of extract and fruit. From a first-growth quality, hillside vineyard (13 acres), this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeously pure as well as impeccably well-balanced with a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood. In fact, the new oak component, which is significant, is largely obliterated by the wine’s stunning fruit. This majestic Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for 25-30 years...
...This brilliant estate high on Pritchard Hill has produced some of the greatest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon since it first burst on the scene in 1992. Proprietor Don Bryant now has over 20 years of experience and he continues to fashion one of the flagship Cabernet Sauvignons of that hallowed viticultural region."
