We started the evening off with a gorgeous Chardonnay and then took our palates for a stroll through Bordeaux with this Napa beast. It was literally perfect. 30 minutes to open and once it did there was a pure concentration of fruit, graphite, oak and a surreal opulent Nose. This is drinking as good as if not better then a lot of 1st growth Bordeaux's that I've enjoyed through the years. Simply amazing!!!! Too bad I only had 1 in my cellar!!!!
Amazingness in a glass!!!

Not showing as well as other times I have had this. At times it has been extraordinary, tonight it is "just" very good.

This is absolutely spectacular. Pritchard Hill is one of my favorite sites for Cab and Bryant is a killer. This '97 is a baby, muscular, heavy duty wine with a killer structure. Everything is here, at the right place. True to its terroir, you feel a seriousness and authority in this wine melted by a beautiful, joyful mature fruit and dark spices. Toasted cinnamon, reglisse and cassonade melted in the fruit. Tannins are perfectly well integrated and the finish goes on and on. What a privilege to drink this wine! #californiacab #california #pritchardhill

Dark and saucy. Chocolate? Nothing wrong with this. Very intense and a bit syrupy for me.

Intense high alcohol very robust it does smooth out. Dark fruit. Blackberry. Hot finish. Power house. Would prefer something subtle
