1993 Bryant Family Cabernet Rare Magnum - 97 pts!
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
