2010 Bryant Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1126193 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (RP)  (10/2013)

95 points Vinous

 Bright red-ruby. A captivating cool aspect to the aromas of black raspberry, licorice and graphite. Classic youthfully dense, savory wine in a rather Old World style, showing a beautifully refined texture and a distinctly briney minerality to its flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry and chocolate. Clearly less viscous in texture than the 2009 but as strong in extract. The wine's huge but thoroughly ripe tannins shut down the chewy, savory, very long finish in the early going. This beauty should unfold spectacularly over the next 20 years. (ST) 95+  (5/2017)

95 points Wine Spectator

 The 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. (JL)  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

96+ points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Bryant Family Vineyard is drop-dead gorgeous. A sumptuous, layered wine, the 2010 flows across the palate with stunning depth. The aromas are beautifully vibrant, nuanced and delineated, while the tannins have begun to soften just a touch, revealing superior depth, polish and finesse. Overall, this is an energetic vintage for Bryant's flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, with lovely tension and energy, not to mention tremendous overall balance. Rose petals, sweet red berries and mint wrap around the expressive, textured finish." (11/2013)
