Bryant Family Vineyard

A true expression of the Pritchard Hill terroir, Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was first released in 1992 and is culled solely from grapes grown on the estate’s 13-acre vineyard. This First Growth wine conveys the long winemaking history of the region, a confluence of climate and soil plus a team of experts committed to nurturing its creation. Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon possesses

ethereal aromatics and pure minerality that give focus and energy. The complexity of the site yields unusually dynamic wines for a single varietal. The wines of the mid-90s inform our current, somewhat more restrained approach towards crafting wines that demonstrate structural elegance, balance with good acidity and plush tannins — all elements that make them very age-worthy.

Visual Tasting Notes

Our 2016 Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the core of our hillside estate. Layers of vibrant cassis, black cherry, and black currant interplay with savory infusions of graphite, sage, tapenade and tobacco that unfold in unwavering strata. Texturally, the palate displays profound density and minerality, woven with finessed tannin and backed by a brightness, purity and freshness that transcends to a seemingly endless and pure finish.

“A wine of world-class quality… as complete and potentially complex as any first-growth Bordeaux.”
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Bettina

Seductive. Margaux-like femininity. Full-bodied. Opulent. This is how critics describe BETTINA, Bryant Estate’s beautifully layered and complex blend of four Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Sourced from David Abreu’s exceptional estate vineyards — Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas—the differing elevations and soil compositions give BETTINA wonderful structure and dimensionality. This blend has evolved into an irresistibly hedonistic powerhouse.

Visual Tasting Notes

Embodying a brooding and tensioned energy, our 2016 BETTINA encapsulates the character and essences of the Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas vineyards. Deeply aromatic with notes of blue and black fruits, violets, camphor and crushed rocks, the profile is exquisitely nuanced, persistent and finessed. On the palate, the BETTINA has a fleshiness to seamlessly integrate powerful tannins, which effortlessly and pleasurably manifest into an elongated and smooth finish.

“A striking wine graced with exquisite aromatics and beautifully delineated fruit… woven together beautifully in this fabulous Bordeaux-style blend.”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous

DB4

Originally released in 2009, DB4 could be described as the precocious younger sibling of the Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Young and playful yet silky and supple, this meticulously crafted blend marries a variety of grapes from David Abreu’s Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas vineyards with Bryant Estate fruit. DB4 is hands-down one of the finest Napa Valley wines in its price range, making it infinitely pourable. 

“One of Napa Valley’s hidden gems, this is a wine of freshness, silkiness and approachability. ”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Visual Tasting Notes

A combination of Bryant, Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas fruit, our 2016 DB4 immediately dances from the glass with aromatics of fresh red and blue fruits, rhubarb and menthol. Very lively and electric, the profile exhibits this freshness and is laced with notes of forest, wet river rocks and a dusting of cocoa. The palate is concentrated, refined and elegant, and gives way to a balanced and polished finish.
