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

If picking, this was my wine of the night. One of those wines that just mesmerizes you and has you thinking about it days later. A perfect balance of classic Napa cab and new school style. I’d call this high toned in the way it shows such a gorgeous lift to the aromatics. So perfumed. Espresso, melted chocolate, ripe and candied black cherries, fresh squeezed blackberries, brown sugar and sandalwood. It’s impeccably balanced on the palate...decadent, yet restrained. Baking spices dance on the tongue, enveloped in dark red plum, bayleaf and the perfect marriage of acidity and tannin. Drop dead gorgeous now and for many years to come.

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

Rich aromas of blackberries, cassis, saddle leather, spice box and some caramelized brown sugar. Notes of espresso beans and cedar. Sexy, silky glycerol palate. Great balance. Long finish. My WOTN.

The most absurdly long finish i have ever experienced. Had about 1.5 oz from a coravin pour. Cant wait to taste the rest. Already so polymerized for such youth. Blackberry preserves with vanilla like cashew flavors. Mossy wet soil like nose with a marshmallowy brown sugar like oak finish followed by candied red peppers. Un freakin believable. Needs more time, tannins are still quite coarse, but overall, this is going to evolve into silk. The best Bryant i have tasted. With age it will make knees buckle.

This is a gorgeous expression of why the Bryant vineyard is so highly lauded. Elegant and balanced with red fruits, complex aromatics of sandalwood, pipe tobacco and flowers. Evolved so nicely in the glass. Was decanted just before pouring.
