About Bryant Estate
Bryant occupies an eminent position among the pantheon of premier Napa Valley producers. In 1985, after purchasing a 40 acre property on the slopes of Pritchard Hill overlooking Lake Hennessy, Don L. Bryant came to realise its untapped position and replanted a 13 acre parcel with Cabernet Sauvignon.
The vineyards sit at 750-1,000 feet above sea level, facing westwards on the north side of Pritchard Hill. Rocky, exposed and with enough afternoon sunshine to bask the vines with heady warmth, the property requires a steady grower’s hand and expert winemaking. Yields are kept low, with annual production ranging between 300 and 1,000 cases
Grapes are picked exclusively by hand and then sorted extensively. This is followed by a cold-soak and cool maceration to preserve freshness, elegance, and soften the tannins. Once pressed, the wines are aged for 18-24 months in new French oak.
BRYANT FAMILY VINEYARD 2018
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The purest expression of the Bryant Estate style. A wondrous layering of bright cherry, blackcurrant and violets are married perfectly with savoury notes of sage, tapenade and tobacco. Round, dense flavours are woven together with velvety tannins and a pure finish that seems near un-ending.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot
A captivating Bordeaux blend sourced from David Abreu’s plots in Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas, this is a wine with an ethereal sense of depth and harmony. A rich diversity in soil types allows the uniquely seductive character of the BETTINA to shine through, showcasing deeply aromatic notes of blue and black fruits.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
A precociously playful blend made with grapes from Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas, along with Bryant Estate fruit. Meticulously crafted to a lively yet elegant style, it culminates in a polished finish that makes it infinitely pourable. Originally released in 2009, this wine is a hidden gem of the Napa Valley, and one of the finest in its price range.
