    June 8, 2019 - Gorgeous and powerful, needs significant decanting/time (which I didn’t allow due to logistical constraints — aka, we ran out of wine LOL) but all the elements and balance exist for a classic, timeless Bryant.

    November 26, 2018 - Small pour from bottle decanted for about two hours. Plush, clean CA cab. Dark plum/blackberry, mocha with a very slight hit of earth if you look for it. Medium acidity. High quality finish with round tannin and long length. Surprisingly no heat for the high concentration/mouthfeel. Wife was very happy.

    May 26, 2017 - Still dense and tannic, probably not one of its greatest vintages but will keep improving and come more into balance

    December 10, 2016 - Drank at MWA Wine Advisory Board Dinner. Against verticals of Spottswood, 97 Insignia, Togni and more. This was up there.
    Great balance and hidden tanins. This could use more time.
