Notes From The Winemaker:
A quarter century ago, Bryant Estate released its first Cabernet Sauvignon from its majestic hillside vineyard on Pritchard Hill. Perched above the fog line at a 900-foot elevation, the steepness, undulating shape, light and ventilation make our estate one of the most dynamic sites in the world. The tenacity of our vineyard and winemaking teams ensures wines of incredible refinement and longevity. 2016 provided ideal growing conditions: a rainy winter replenished the soil profile, thereby establishing a reliable foundation for long and steady canopy growth and fruit development. Without any extreme weather events, the growing season was consistently even, as reflected in the fluidity and seamlessness of the wine. The hillside vines yielded fruit of singular quality with resounding clarity.

Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 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.


Ratings & Reviews:

100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Oct 2018)

99 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Bryant's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is majestic. Soaring aromatics and silky, lacy textural nuances speak to finesse above all else. Polished and utterly impeccable, the 2016 builds on the success the estate first reached in 2014 and takes it to a very natural conclusion. Crème de cassis, blackberry jam, chocolate, mint and wild flowers all grace the palate, with impossibly silky, fine tannins that accentuate the wine's pure elegance. So many Napa Cabernets reveal themselves with ease, but the 2016 Bryant is a wine that brings the taster in, and only starts to show all of its cards with time." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2018)

99 Points - James Suckling:
"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. Hard not to drink and contemplate now, but better after 2022." - (12 Feb, 2019)

98 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes all from the estate on Pritchard Hill and was brought up mostly in new French oak. It’s an extraordinary wine in every aspect, revealing a saturated purple color, full body, thrilling depth and richness, and a classic perfume of crème de cassis, black cherry liqueur, graphite, and an incredibly floral component. This is a majestic Cabernet Sauvignon that grows on you with time in the glass. It offers incredible elegance and purity as well as serious amounts of underlying structure, some subtle oak, and a wealth of tannins." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)
