1997 Bryant Family Cabernet - 100 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.

Rating 100 RP - I have consumed several bottles of the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill. One of the most awesome young reds I have ever tasted it possesses a black/purple color a seamless texture and freakishly high levels of intensity (cassis black and blueberries infused with espresso chocolate and licorice) that are flawlessly presented in a full-bodied massive yet elegant wine. Nothing is out of balance in this explosively rich thick highly-extracted Cabernet. A compelling historic Cabernet Sauvignon it will drink well for 30-35 years. It is not too much to suggest that in the future Bryant's Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon might well be one of the wines that redefines greatness in Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: now-2035. RP
