Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Bryant
|Region||Napa, North Coast|
Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon entirely from the Pritchard Hill estate and aged in 90% new oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and has a disarmingly profound red roses and red and black currant nose with wild blueberries and yeast extract accents plus tapenade, tilled soil, subtle exotic spices and pencil shavings and the faintest waft of lavender. The palate is ethereal in its weight with a medium to full-body supported by firm yet perfectly ripe, grainy tannins structuring the tightly wound savory layers and leading to a very long, fragrant earth finish. So poised, so classy, so Bryant.
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
Blackberry and blackcurrant character with dried flowers, iron and fresh mushrooms. Very subtle and complex. Medium-to full-bodied, very linear and focused with super fine tannins that are driven and succulent. Extremely long and flavorful. Shows precision and focus. Finely crafted. Subtle.
