Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Db4 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #142 (Aug 2002) Readers wanting more structure and a Bordeaux-like tannin profile should check out the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon. It is as close to a premier cru Bordeaux as Bryant may ever achieve. The tannin possesses a structure and astringency reminiscent of a young Bordeaux. The nose offers up scents of melted licorice, smoky barbecue, truffles, earth, blackberries, currants, coffee, graphite, and blueberries. It is more obviously muscular and less seductive than the 2000 or 2001, because the tannin is more aggressive. The finish is exceptionally long. The antithesis of the 2000, the 1999 will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. P.S. As this wine sat in the glass, its aroma brought to mind another wine ... the 1983 Palmer.
