2008 Bryant Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1056782 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deep, rich and expressive, with a broad range of complex flavors, extending from fleshy currant to dark berry, mineral, cedar, mocha and espresso. Full-bodied, ending with a pleasant lift to all the flavors, giving this a supple, gracious aftertaste. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2011)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has lots of spices, dark fruits, and hints of coffee. Full-bodied, with firm tannins. Wonderful purity of fruit and flowers. This has it all there. Pull the cork after 2014. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (794 cases) shows more chocolate, roasted espresso, blueberry and blackberry characteristics in addition to more concentration and depth than I noticed last year and a big, powerful, glycerin-imbued, heady finish. It should drink well for 15 years. One of Napa Valley’s most beautiful vineyards is Don Bryant’s vineyard high on Pritchard Hill, just below Colgin and Tim Mondavi’s Continuum and not far from such other benchmark properties as Chappellet, Del Dotto and David Arthur. These are all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, but the production rarely passes 1,000 cases, even in the most abundant vintages. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red-ruby. Aromas of plum, licorice, minerals and wild herbs, plus a whiff of spun sugar. In a distinctly plush, creamy-sweet style, conveying an opulent dried-fruit character complicated by a faint leathery quality. Not the last word in complexity but finishes with very smooth tannins and excellent length. This wine is carrying just 1.2 grams per liter of residual sugar but tastes sweeter than that. Not a classic style for this bottling, and certainly ready to drink. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

K&L Notes

Bryant Family is one of the premier collectors' dream Cabernets in California. Serious wine here; just as an example, David Abreu is their vineyard manager and Michel Rolland is their consulting enologist. Always highly rated and sought after, the Bryant Cab is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate vineyard, Pritchard Hill, which looks out over Lake Hennessey.
