    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made from our 13-acre estate vineyard. This wine is a beautiful expression of our unique terroir and a testament to the dedication of our winemaking and vineyard team to produce the finest possible wine from this site.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a fine wine. While it does not reveal much weight, it is a dense plum/purple-colored, big, thick, concentrated effort. Evolved aromas of smoke, cedar, tapenade, blackberries, creme de cassis, and creosote are followed by a lush, full-bodied, voluptuously-textured 1998 exhibiting superb intensity as well as low acid, sweet, pure flavors. This is a dazzling example of extremely ripe Cabernet Sauvignon made under less than ideal conditions. It will drink well upon its release, and over the following two decades.

    Good medium ruby. Aromas of roasted blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, tar and roast coffee. Less expressive than the '99 or '00 but very concentrated for the vintage, although with a bit less stuffing one is aware of a faint edge of acidity. Narrows a bit toward the end, but lingers impressively.
