At points rustic and rough-hewn, but also enormously complex and layered, with dense, elegant herb, olive, cedar, blackberry and wild berry fruit that is full-blown and tightly focused, rich and layered, gaining velocity on the finish while retaining a sense of wildness. Best from 2012 through 2014.

The star of this trio is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (907 cases). Beautiful aromas of blueberry liqueur, blackberries, camphor, incense and acacia flowers is followed by a well-textured, full-bodied, stunningly opulent, voluptuous wine with plenty of structure lurking beneath the surface. Super-pure and intense, it is the strongest wine produced by Byrant over the last 4-5 years. It needs 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades.

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%.

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.

Made in a full-bodied, more masculine style, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon offers more evolved aromas of high class, unsmoked cigar tobacco, blackberries, black currants, earth, and underbrush. It is a deep, dense, ruggedly constructed Cabernet revealing powerful tannins in the finish. While outstanding, it is dwarfed by the monumental quality of the 2007. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring, and consume it over the following two decades.

Delightfully complex, elegant, rich and subtle, with a core of ripe, spicy currant, black cherry and plum that's pure and focused, supple and juicy, with an amazing finish that reverberates with flavor. Shows great balance, concentration and persistence. Best from 2010 through 2020.

Deep, rich and expressive, with a broad range of complex flavors, extending from fleshy currant to dark berry, mineral, cedar, mocha and espresso. Full-bodied, ending with a pleasant lift to all the flavors, giving this a supple, gracious aftertaste.... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (794 cases) shows more chocolate, roasted espresso, blueberry and blackberry characteristics in addition to more concentration and depth than I noticed last year and a big, powerful, glycerin-imbued, heady finish. It should drink well for 15 years."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
