Briary black cherry black raspberry licorice and menthol on the superripe nose. Initially a bit tight but opened with aeration to show fresh layered black fruit flavors of splendid depth. It's hard to imagine that there's a 2000 California cabernet with a more impressive middle palate. Finishes with great broad mouthcoating tannins and wonderful sweetness of fruit. This got better and better as it opened in the glass. 95 points

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is a candidate for "wine of the vintage." It boasts a saturated black/purple color as well as a sexy up-front nose of melted licorice intermixed with creosote blueberry and blackberry liqueur and graphite scents. It is layered opulent full-bodied and atypically accessible for a young Bryant Cabernet with low acidity and exceptional length. This remarkable effort will be one of the easiest to drink as well as fastest to evolve Bryants made to date. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.

Full-bodied from start to finish with a long detailed aftertaste mouthcoating tannins and touches of herb cedar and spice. Builds... A big rich extracted style with a gutsy core of currant pencil lead earth and plum. Full-bodied from start to finish with a long detailed aftertaste mouthcoating tannins and touches of herb cedar and spice. Builds momentum. Drink now through 2012. 800 cases made. (JL)
