1993 Bryant Family Estate - 97 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 97 RP - There are just under 1000 cases of this extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon produced from a vineyard on Pritchard Hill a viticultural area most associated with one of Napa Valley's most conspicuous underachievers Chappellet. Production of Bryant's Cabernet Sauvignon will drop to just over 600 cases in 1995 as one-third of the vineyard was recently replanted. Bryant's opaque black/purple-colored Cabernets are fermented with wild yeast and bottled without any clarification techniques such as filtration. They also receive a pre-fermentation five day cold maceration. This technique is used by consultant Helen Turley for all the Cabernet Sauvignons she makes. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon has turned out even better than I predicted last year and I thought it was an amazing wine from barrel. It exhibits an opaque purple/black color and a huge fragrant penetrating bouquet of minerals licorice toast and remarkable layers of black fruits. Although extremely full-bodied the wine's hugeness and massive concentration come across as beautifully poised balanced and delineated. The tannin is not as sweet as in the 1994 but it is ripe. The quantity of tannin should ensure this wine's graceful evolution for another 20-25 years. RP
