    October 14, 2020 - Decanted and poured. Cork disintegrated, but filtered and no ill effects. Rich purple color to red at the edge. Black fruit, maybe leaf tobacco, graphite, oak, hint of eucalyptus and cut grass on the nose. That description doesn't really do it justice, very pleasant bouquet of aromas. Palate is a robust, complex blend of black and red fruits, spice, licorice, hints of pencil lead, menthol, nicely balanced. Full bodied, smooth, long, slightly spicy finish, well-integrated, subtle tannins, creating an exceptional mouth feel/experience. Wonderful!

    September 27, 2020 - Pretty nuances of strawberry, deep raspberry and red currant followed by lavender and lovely Asian notes. Seamless tannins gracing this beautifully balanced wine. Cedar with slight mint and gorgeous berries gliding along the palate. Develops more in the glass to create a silky wine cascading around your mouth - absolutely wonderful and drinking incredibly well.

    August 29, 2020 - From a pristinely-cellared bottle, Bryant's 2006 (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is aging gracefully. Opaque ruby/red, intensely aromatic and packed with flavor, it delivers a payload of dark bramble fruits, kirsch, Asian spices, cocoa, truffles and pipe tobacco. Full-bodied, low-to-medium in acidity, judiciously oaked and with nicely integrated alcohol (14.9%), it is a "big" wine, but very soft-textured by virtue of its plentiful silky tannins. With excellent mid-palate density and a smooth finish that lingers on and on, this is a classic-quality Cab in every sense. Comparably cellared bottles should easily reach their thirtieth birthday. Drink now-2036.
