The Bryant Family Vineyard, set just below a ridge top overlooking the beautiful Lake Hennessy, enjoys a micro-climate with the cool lake breezes and protection from at the same time from the drying canyon winds. These natural factors combined with meticulous vineyard management by David Abreu yield wines of truly exceptional quality.

The aim of this wine is to champion the vineyard terroir while nodding firmly in the direction of the great winemaking traditions of Bordeaux.

“A potentially perfect wine, the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a fabulous nose of cassis, cream, blueberries, violets, minerals, and spice. It smells like a hypothetical blend of a great vintage of L'Evangile, Clinet, and Mouton-Rothschild. The opaque purple/black color is followed by a full-bodied wine stacked and packed with fruit, glycerin, and extract. No component part is out of place in this formidably endowed, remarkably well-balanced wine. The purity, richness, sweetness and depth of fruit suggest that the wine's potential is limitless… the Bryant Family Vineyard's 1994 should evolve into one of California's legendary Cabernets. It will age effortlessly for 25-30 years.” Robert Parker
