Bryant Family Vineyard Proprietor Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$774

98 Points Parker - rare                                    One of Napa Valley's most collectible Cabernets. Extremely limited. 98 Points Robert Parker:  "Bryant’s flagship wine, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill offers a rare but magnificent forest floor/floral aromatic profile with lavishly rich, ripe notes of crème de cassis, blueberry and black raspberry liqueur. Fleshy, opulent, full-bodied and multidimensional, it conceals some significant tannins behind its wealth of extract and fruit. From a first-growth quality, hillside vineyard (13 acres), this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeously pure as well as impeccably well-balanced with a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood. In fact, the new oak component, which is significant, is largely obliterated by the wine’s stunning fruit. This majestic Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for 25-30 years... ...This brilliant estate high on Pritchard Hill has produced some of the greatest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon since it first burst on the scene in 1992. Proprietor Don Bryant now has over 20 years of experience and he continues to fashion one of the flagship Cabernet Sauvignons of that hallowed viticultural region."

Rich aromas of blackberries, cassis, saddle leather, spice box and some caramelized brown sugar. Notes of espresso beans and cedar. Sexy, silky glycerol palate. Great balance. Long finish. My WOTN.

The most absurdly long finish i have ever experienced. Had about 1.5 oz from a coravin pour. Cant wait to taste the rest. Already so polymerized for such youth. Blackberry preserves with vanilla like cashew flavors. Mossy wet soil like nose with a marshmallowy brown sugar like oak finish followed by candied red peppers. Un freakin believable. Needs more time, tannins are still quite coarse, but overall, this is going to evolve into silk. The best Bryant i have tasted. With age it will make knees buckle.

This is a gorgeous expression of why the Bryant vineyard is so highly lauded. Elegant and balanced with red fruits, complex aromatics of sandalwood, pipe tobacco and flowers. Evolved so nicely in the glass. Was decanted just before pouring.
