2009 Bryant Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1088063 97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Insane nose of pure cassis, minerals, and gorgeous flowers. This is stunning. Full and juicy, with amazing layers of fruit, from cassis to blueberries and hints of vanilla on the great finish. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The fabulous 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill displays the tell-tale floral character that routinely emerges from this vineyard, along with blueberry and black currant liqueur intermixed with hints of oak, camphor and incense. The purity of the fruit, the layered, multidimensional mouthfeel and spectacular 50-second finish are all characteristics of some of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons Napa Valley has ever produced. This beauty is one of the candidates for wine of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 25-30 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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 this wine, which is about much more than simply primary fruit and displays more energy than either the '08 or '07 Bryant bottlings. A youthful yet already impeccably balanced wine with great class and finesse, this beauty finishes with utterly seamless, noble tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich and smooth in tannins, with some sharpness through the finish, this shows masses of ripe blackberries and dark chocolate. A bit of time in the glass reprises and accentuates the chocolaty richness. Despite its power, this is refined and high toned, a serious cellar candidate. Give it 10–15 years. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (10/2012)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A real beauty, exhibiting riveting aromatics that touch a range of dark berry, green olive and herb flavors, with cedar, mocha and espresso notes. Yet for all the size and density of this Cabernet, the tannins are fine and silky. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

97-point update, LPB: "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." (Wine Advocate, 1/2020)
