From the famed Prichard Hill estate vineyard, this 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a cult wine, rubbing shoulders with Screaming Eagle, Harlan and Colgin. The nose is typical of Napa Cab, with rich aromas of steeped blackberries, cassis, saddle leather, spice box and carmelized brown sugar. On the palate, it's silky, sexy and nicely balanced. There is a lovely, polished interplay of fine tannins and glycerol, along with darker notes of saddle leather, cedar, and espresso beans. Medium plus finish.

The 2001 vintage was tough but this was a shining star last night!! Long finish, integrated tanin's and oak. It was awesome. I picked up at auction at a relatively good price due to the vintage and am absolutely not regretting my decision. I loved it!

Better than I thought it would be. Much better than the last time I've had it.

True prep for my IPO seminars at the Aspen Classic: kind buddy brings Bryant Family ’01. Cork shatters, no coffee filters available, but kitchen strainer rescues. Glorious wine: oriental spiced nose, cashmere texture. Has many years of life left.
