Bryant Family, Bettina, Bordeaux Red Blend, Oakville, 2016

Sale price£767.00


One of the original trio of cult wineries alongside Screaming Eagle and Harlan Estate. Critic Antonio Galloni has stated, "Bryant is without question one of the most spectacular vineyards in Napa Valley. I don’t see any reason why the Cabernets that emerge from this property shouldn't be among the top 5-10 wines in the valley each and every year". Making just three wines, Bryant specialises in utterly epic productions and tiny releases. These wines are built for the longterm - cellar well!

95+ Points. Lisa Perroti-Brown

"The majority of the blend here comes from the Abreu’s Thorevilos vineyard with a splash from Bryant. Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Bettina Bryant Proprietary Red Wine is deep garnet-purple colored with an incredibly complex meaty/earthy nose offering notions of beef, charcuterie, black olives and truffles with dried herbs over a tantalizing core of cassis, resin, warm plums and blackberries plus a waft of mossy bark. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm, grainy and earthy/savory, with a long finish."  The Wine Advocate, 29th Oct 2018
