Ruby-red. Crushed cassis and caramel on the nose. Dense and sweet on the palate, with a deep core of cassis fruit. Powerful, ripe, long wine, finishing with sweet tannins and a youthful, juicy quality. This needs a few years of patience. Just 400 cases were produced from a very small harvest. The 2001 vintage was the first harvest here to include the recently replanted portion of this vineyard.

There are 400 cases of the brilliant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was tasted several months after bottling. This broodingly dense opaque purple-colored wine offers an extraordinary nose of blueberries, smoky oak, chocolate, and licorice. Powerful, rich, and concentrated, with sweet tannin, a thick, juicy style, and excellent delineation, this large-scaled Cabernet should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and last through 2020.

Full medium ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, black raspberry, lead pencil, licorice, violet and menthol; a glorious expression of hillside Napa Valley cabernet. Sweet, concentrated and powerful, with almost painfully intense, liqueur-like black fruit flavors. Very long, slow-mounting finish stains the palate with brambly dark berry flavor.

Superripe, chocolatey aromas verge on porty, and yet this brooding wine shows an almost medicinal freshness, not to mention sexy toast and smoke notes from the Darnajou barrels. Huge, massive and powerful; a wine of extravagant richness. This really saturates the palate with dark berry and espresso flavors. Finishes with horizontal tannins and explosive length. This wine, from a north-facing slope, possesses an outsized structure. It will be interesting to compare this vintage with some of the earlier wines made here by Helen Turley.

A Cabernet tour de force. Rich, opulent, powerful and well-structured. This is packed with ripe, intense currant, spice, blackberry, earth and loam flavors framed by spicy, cedary oak. Ends with a firm wall of tannins, yet the berry and currant flavors push through. Best from 2009 through 2019.

(Barrel tasting) An amazing barrel sample. Rich and plush, with a concentrated mix of ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry flavors that are tightly focused and persistent, with a long, detailed finish. Caressing texture.

The 2005 continues to exhibit a European-styled finesse, elegance, and a certain austerity. The wine also shows considerable new oak, lots of acidity, which is almost atypical for this vineyard site, and a deep ruby/purple color with notes of cedar, bay leaf, cigar box, and copious quantities of black currant liqueur. It is a streamlined, classic, but slightly austere style for Bryant. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.
