    January 1, 2020 - This spent three hours in the decanted and was likely better suited for straight from the bottle. Red fruit and tobacco centric with plenty of cassis. Silky smooth now but still plenty of time to go. Drink or hold a few more.

    November 30, 2019 - Decanted for 3 hours. Round, soft, all the fruit and complexity melds together with an aged nose and flavor profile. Smooth, with clear cabernet flavors dominating. Enjoyable, but steeply priced.

    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.

  • Vietty Likes this wine:

    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
