1996 Bryant Family Cabernet - 99 Pts!
Bryant Estate reflects the vision of proprietors Don and Bettina Bryant. After purchasing land on Pritchard Hill nearly 30 years ago, Don replanted the estate with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, employing modern viticulture practices and nurturing a team of local and international masters of their craft. His efforts quickly established one of California’s premier First Growth wines, the Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, now among Napa Valley’s most acclaimed labels.

 

Bryant Estate wines are currently harvested, blended and produced entirely by hand from grapes planted and grown on the original 13-acre estate, as well as on neighboring vineyards on Howell Mountain, Las Posadas and Madrona. The wines are also bottled, labeled, wrapped and packed by hand on the estate, then shipped directly to customers.

Rating 99 RP - The opaque purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a spectacular exotic bouquet of Peking duck skins blackberry and cassis liqueur roasted herbs and burning charcoal. It is phenomenally intense with record levels of dry extract and glycerin. This hedonistic blockbuster is crammed with jammy fruits nicely buttressed and framed by adequate acidity and tannin. Drink this marvelous Cabernet Sauvignon now or cellar it for two decades. This is mind-boggling stuff! The wine from this hillside vineyard near Napa's Pritchard Hill has already become mythical (1992 was the debut vintage). This is a wine of world-class quality and is certainly as complete and potentially complex as any first-growth Bordeaux. To date it has been characterized by extraordinary richness complexity and harmony as well as the potential to evolve and improve for 20 or more years. RP
