Estate Notes

Bryant Family Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 is in excellent condition.

Bryant Family Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon is notoriously hard to get hold off, available through a waiting list only. It is crafted from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on a 13-acre estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill, overlooking Lake Hennessey. This First Growth vineyard is meticulously farmed by David Abreu, with whom the Bryant family has been working with for 12 years


“Teasing the taster with a possible three-digit perfection is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill. This beauty shows lots of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, spring flower and forest floor notes in an opulent, full-bodied, powerful, dense, rich style buttressed by significant ripe tannins and decent acidity. Again, the striking purity and singular character of this Bryant Cabernet Sauvignon oozes potential as well as pedigree. This spectacular, young Cabernet should turn out to be one of the all-time great Bryant Cabernet Sauvignons, rivaling their 1997, but slightly more structured. Forget this one for 3-4 years and drink it over the following three decades.

"This brilliant estate high on Pritchard Hill has produced some of the greatest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon since it first burst on the scene.” Robert Parker

"Seductive oak has a smooth vanilla bean edge, leading to a rich yet elegant core of spicy berry, mineral, mocha, gravelly earth and road tar. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors retain their graceful balance and end with a long, persistent finish." Wine Spectator
