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. Much like its cellarmate, the 1994 Colgin Cabernet Sauvignon (also made by Helen Turley), the Bryant Family Vineyard's 1994 should evolve into one of California's legendary Cabernets. It will age effortlessly for 25-30 years. - WA, RP (12/1996)

Healthy full medium red. Sexy, mellow aromas of plum, tobacco, gravel and loam. Very dry and fine-grained, showing attractive plummy lift. Nicely brisk but a bit pinched and not a fleshy wine. The firm tannins turned a bit dry with air. Still alive but this isn't going anywhere at this point.- Stephen Tanzer (5/217)
