Soft and elegant red cherries 🍒 married with notes of tobacco cigars. Wow this is soooo approachable.

Good after an hour, great after two...this had the classic sticky sweet red fruit characteristic of this vineyard but more subdued than other vintages. Still my favorite Napa Cab!

Celebrating my son’s birthday and birth year. Amazingly soft and velvety. Cedar spice, black currants and toasted bread. Can’t image it tasting any better than it does now.

2000 Bryant that has held up perfectly and fully evolved. Fresh and lively with 3-5 years left, easy. Mingling jammy fruits, layers of sweet spice matched with exotic spice. Opulent and flamboyant. Excellent from the moment it was opened to the last drop.

So beautifully polished - clean purity and lengthy. Silky textured and blue toned - violet, lavender, crushed rocks, rosemary and sage. Love this

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is the most successful of Bryant's 2015s. Rich, sumptuous and exotically ripe, the Estate nevertheless maintains the size, shape and freshness that made the 2014s here so extraordinary. Expressive floral notes and red-toned fruit notes give the 2015 enough brightness to play off the naturally ripe, succulent fruit. The 2015 will start to drink well in another few years, once the aromatics develop more nuance. All things considered, this is a terrific wine in a very challenging vintage.

From the famed Prichard Hill estate vineyard, this 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a cult wine, rubbing shoulders with Screaming Eagle, Harlan and Colgin. The nose is typical of Napa Cab, with rich aromas of steeped blackberries, cassis, saddle leather, spice box and carmelized brown sugar. On the palate, it's silky, sexy and nicely balanced. There is a lovely, polished interplay of fine tannins and glycerol, along with darker notes of saddle leather, cedar, and espresso beans. Medium plus finish.
