Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Db4 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Bryant's opaque black/purple-colored Cabernets are fermented with wild yeast and bottled without any clarification techniques such as filtration. They also receive a pre-fermentation five day cold maceration, This technique is used by consultant Helen Turley for all the Cabernet Sauvignons she makes. The enormously promising, potentially perfect 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those rare wines that possesses awesome aromatic, flavor, and texture dimensions. Totally dry, it comes across as sweet because of its highly extracted, ripe fruit. Opaque purple/black-colored, with a knock-out nose of black fruit (cassis and black-raspberries), this wine hits the palate with phenomenal concentration that brilliantly manages to be neither heavy nor overbearing. Plenty of velvety tannin is concealed behind the fruit's remarkable intensity

...Extraordinarily deep nose features black raspberry, black cherry, smoke and leather. Great explosive middle is at once broodingly deep and incredibly sweet, without being overly roasted: flavors of chocolate-covered cherries and maple syrup domina... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
