    Critical Acclaim:

    Teasing the taster with a possible three-digit perfection is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill. This beauty shows lots of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, spring flower and forest floor notes in an opulent, full-bodied, powerful, dense, rich style buttressed by significant ripe tannins and decent acidity. Again, the striking purity and singular character of this Bryant Cabernet Sauvignon oozes potential as well as pedigree. This spectacular, young Cabernet should turn out to be one of the all-time great Bryant Cabernet Sauvignons, rivaling their 1997, but slightly more structured. Forget this one for 3-4 years and drink it over the following three decades.

    Smoke, tar, incense and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an especially dark, brooding vintage for Bryant. Cassis, pencil shavings and melted road tar emerge later, adding further complexity and nuance. Unlike the 2009, there is little in the way of early appeal. On the other hand, I see the 2010 drinking beautifully for many, many years. There is an underlying vein of minerality that gives the 2010 a sense of energy and focus.

    Seductive oak has a smooth vanilla bean edge, leading to a rich yet elegant core of spicy berry, mineral, mocha, gravelly earth and road tar. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors retain their graceful balance and end with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2025. 855 cases made.

    Good full ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cassis, black raspberry, licorice, pepper and sage, plus a whiff of sweet butter. Broad, sweet and deep, with a layered richness to the expressive flavors of black raspberry, toffee, sage and wild herbs. Finishes with broad, suave, dusty tannins. Attractive already, but will show greater definition once it has had several years in bottle to absorb some of its baby fat. (I retasted the 2009 next to this wine and gave the earlier vintage the edge for its combination of almost exotic richness and minty lift. With its full-blown, Pomerol-like aromas of black raspberry, tobacco and truffley underbrush and creamy texture, the '09 is balanced to give immediate pleasure, but it has the firm tannins and fresh acidity for a long life in bottle. I rated it 94 back in Issue 162; my recent bottle merited 95 points.) 93(+?) points
