1995 Bryant Family - Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon - USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley - Red

USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

Located high above Lake Hennessy, the vineyards which supply this outstanding expression of Napa's bounty are some of the few influenced by the moderating influence of a relatively large body of water. At 1,500-feet, the high altitude of the Pritchard Hill area also serves to produce low yields of premium grapes that provide the dense, concentrated, black fruit aspect of this enormously complex...

Issue Issue 78

Opaque ruby-red. Fruity, expressive aromas of black raspberry, nuts and fresh herbs; distinctly cooler than the '97 and '96. Velvety and sweet in the mouth, with an extraordinarily lush texture for the vintage. Extremely harmonious from the outset, with nicely integrated acidity and sweet, slow-to-build tannins. Great finishing fruit. Production here fell sharply beginning with this vintage because of replanting.

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon is cut from the same mold as the profound 1996, displaying astonishing levels of black fruits (the usual suspects - blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cassis), phenomenal concentration, and virtually perfect balance and equilibrium. I recently wrote an article in Food and Wine magazine itemizing the characteristics of a great wine. They are: 1) the ability to please both the palate and the intellect, 2) the ability to hold the taster's interest, 3) the ability to offer intense aromas and flavors without heaviness, 4) the ability to taste better with each sip, 5) the ability to improve with age, and 6) the ability to offer a singular personality. This wine satisfies every one of those requirements. I often wonder if I get too excited about wines such as this. Yet time is on their side. I truly believe that in 20, 40, or 60 years, when the history of what appears to be a golden age for California wines is analyzed, these wines, and the work of their winemaker, will be even more admired and appreciated by future generations than they are today.

Loads of plum and dark chocolate aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with firm yet silky tannins and a long, subtle finish. Reserved and refined. Seamless.

Classification of Napa
Recently the Finnish publication FINE Wine Magazine has attempted to classify Napa Valley wines akin to the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux. View the article here: "Napa Valley Classification." Since then, there has been much...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
