2009 Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA

Released in 1992, the Bryant Family Vineyard 100 % Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on our 13-acre estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill. The vineyard climbs from 900 to 1200 feet in elevation as it ascends above the shores of Lake Hennessey. With its various exposures, slopes, aspects, and soils, the complexity of the site yields unusually dynamic wines as a single varietal. 

Our Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the core of our hillside estate. Layers of vibrant cassis, black cherry, and black currant interplay with savory infusions of graphite, sage, tapenade and tobacco that unfold in unwavering strata. Texturally, the palate displays profound density and minerality, woven with finessed tannin and backed by a brightness, purity and freshness that transcends to a seemingly endless and pure finish. A true expression of the Pritchard Hill terroir,

Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was first released in 1992 and is culled solely from grapes grown on the estate’s 13-acre vineyard. This First Growth wine conveys the long winemaking history of the region, a confluence of climate and soil plus a team of experts committed to nurturing its creation. Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon possesses ethereal aromatics and pure minerality that give focus and energy. The complexity of the site yields unusually dynamic wines for a single varietal. The wines of the mid-90s inform our current, somewhat more restrained approach towards crafting wines that demonstrate structural elegance, balance with good acidity and plush tannins — all elements that make them very age-worthy.

Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon struts flamboyantly out of the glass with notions of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and plum preserves plus hints of cigar box, Chinese five spice, sautéed herbs, cast-iron pan and charcuterie. Full-bodied, rich, seductive and oh-so-decadent, it has a firm level of beautifully plush tannins and loads of exotic spice and savory layers, finishing long and mineral laced.

Vinous

Good dark red. Expressive, complex scents of plum, black raspberry, cedar, tobacco leaf, mocha and minerals. Fine-grained and energetic on the palate, with its sweet plum and mocha flavors lifted by a floral element. There's something Pomerol-like about the wine, which is about much more than simply primary fruit and displays more energy than either the '08 or '07 bottlings. A youthful yet already impeccably balanced wine with great class and finesse, this beauty finishes with utterly seamless, noble tannins. Winemaker Marc Gagnon named this as one of his three favorite bottles of this tasting. Reviewed by Stephen Tanzer, Issue date: March 2017. Drinking window: 2019 - 2034.
