Bryant Family Vineyard

Proprietor Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Needed about an hour of air, but then simply mind-blowing. Cassis and dark leathery notes, blueberry reduction, round and nicely resolved at this point. Years to go but no need to wait if you have access to a decanter… Superb. — 22 days ago

Proprietor Grown 25th Anniversary Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Yes infanticide! Double decanted and through a aerator plus a two hour decant. It shows amazing promise but it’s likely fifteen or more years in the future which I don’t have! — 8 months ago


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Napa at its best. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Cabernet Franc (22%) and Petit Verdot (18%) from the estate on Pritchard Hill in Oakville, (not far from Colgin and Bryant Family), including fruit from the Mondavi family’s famed and controversial To Kalon vineyard. Silky, opulent, balanced. Well integrated oak. Dried fruit. Hints of vanilla, chocolate — 4 years ago

Proprietor Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The 2009 Bryant Family Wine Cabernet Sauvignon WWB, 100) is a stunning wine made by superstar winemaker Todd Alexander that is singing in harmony at the ten year mark. Aromatically intense, dense and downright intoxicating, the Cabernet slowly unveils Creme de cassis with shades of red bell pepper, mocha, tar, and anise that all come together in marvelously in the glass. The aromatic range is simply sensational as you are brought back to the glass for more decadence. On the mouth the seamless and weightless quality of the wine is quite remarkable. While showing obvious power and richness the seamless texture effortlessly glides across the mid-palate. The tannins have fully resolved in this muscular, yet elegant and sultry wine is astoundingly good now. Simply put, this is perfection in a bottle. Drink 2019-2040- 100 — 4 years ago

Brown Label Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

This is the last fruit MH will get from Stagecoach. Gallo bought the vineyard. Seems the 1,300 acre site deal will help Gallo grow Orin Swift and Louis Martini, and down the road it may help it with new projects. Producers who purchased Stagecoach fruit include; Bryant Family Vineyard and Dalla Valle. Krupp sells fruit to more than 90 wineries, including Alpha Omega, Caymus, Duckhorn and Pahlmeyer.

Pretty nose with perfume, candied, purple florals. A lot beauty and elegance.

Beautiful tannins, soft, supple and dusty. Feel tiny in the mouth but are sweet & tarry. Ripe, juicy, blackberries, black raspberries, purple fruits, plum & strawberries. Powdery rocks, dry, river stone, light, fresh tobacco, used leather, steeped fruit tea, touch of fresh bay leaves, dark, rich soil, black licorice, chocolate cake, berry fruit cola, fresh, red, dark, purple and blue florals. Excellent rainfall acidity. Well structured, nice tension with very good balance. The long finish starts juicy, fruity and mixes in the soft earth. Lasts minutes. Hard to resist now and easy to drink young but would love to try this again in 10-15 years.

@David T A very fun night/weekend with great wines. But, more importantly, a terrific annual event to help raise money for Alzheimer research.

Twice as nice when you can enjoy such wines while simultaneously raising money to fight a horrific condition.

Insignia Estate Grown Napa Valley Red Wine 2010

A friend had a “reduction party” as he was needing to thin out his cellar. Definitely a party I’m happy to attend!

Had the 2012 Odette Reserve or 2012 Bryant Family not been on the table, this may have won the night. Whereas the other two were drinking deliciously, this displayed more youthful notes than I expected. The fruit here was really bright...candied black cherries, fresh blueberries and blackberries, baking spices, toasted oak, and savory charcoal. Nicely compact on the cherries dusted in dark chocolate shavings, Black Forest cake, sandalwood, and smoked meat. If opening now, decant for a few hours.
