(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.

Elegant and stylish, with ripe, vivid black cherry, currant, wild berry and black olive flavors that gain depth and vibrancy, picking up body and complexity and ending with a long, lingering finish that keeps repeating the fruit and cedary oak themes. Best from 2011 through 2017.

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.

The recent vintage of 2004 is by far the strongest vintage at Bryant Family Vineyard, displaying the classic blueberry jam notes intermixed with cassis, smoke, underbrush, and spice. It is a full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine that is beautifully pure, long, dense, and concentrated. Nevertheless, the forward style of this vintage argues for drinking this wine over the next 15+ years.

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.

Potentially a candidate for perfection, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is the finest Bryant Family wine since the aforementioned 1997. Striking aromas and flavors of blackberries, blueberries, flowers, smoke, truffles, and sweet berries lead to a wine with profound concentration, a silky, layered mouthfeel, perfect integration of tannin and wood, and remarkable depth, intensity, and balance. The finish lasts nearly a minute. This stunning Cabernet should age nicely for 20-30 years.

Good full ruby. The nose delivers a blast of blackberry, cassis and melted black licorice, along with a hint of fresh vanilla bean. Very sweet and lush, with superb intensity and energy to the complex, almost candied flavors of currant, crushed stone and flinty minerality. This was a thick fruit bomb in barrel a year ago, but today it impresses more for its clarity, definition and terrific mineral grip. I love the combination of fruit sweetness and acid spine, and the tannins are very suave. The pH here is 3.92 and the alcohol on the label is "only" 14.9%.
