International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 90

Saturated deep ruby. Extraordinarily deep nose features black raspberry, black cherry, smoke and leather. Great explosive middle is at once broodingly deep and incredibly sweet, without being overly roasted: flavors of chocolate-covered cherries and maple syrup dominate. Just enough balancing acidity to give brightness to the wine. The alcohol here is nearly off the charts (in the high 15s), but the wine does not come across as hot. Finishes with melting, soft tannins and incredible sappy length. Critics of this wine will no doubt recommend consumption over the next several years, but this wine may go on and on like a '47 Pomerol. A monument in the making.

I have consumed several bottles of the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill. One of the most awesome young reds I have ever tasted, it possesses a black/purple color, a seamless texture, and freakishly high levels of intensity (cassis, black and blueberries infused with espresso, chocolate, and licorice) that are flawlessly presented in a full-bodied, massive yet elegant wine. Nothing is out of balance in this explosively rich, thick, highly-extracted Cabernet. A compelling, historic Cabernet Sauvignon, it will drink well for 30-35 years.

It is not too much to suggest that in the future, Bryant's Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon might well be one of the wines that redefines greatness in Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of currants, dried flowers and fresh cedar. Complex. Full and solid, with chunky tannins and lots of fruit. A big, Latour-like wine. Impressive and very young still. Chewy. Made for aging; still not ready.

Wow. Although not as thrilling as the previous bottle I tasted last year, this still has tremendous black berry fruit and a finish that doesn't stop. It is remarkably well balanced. Needs two hours of air to show it's stuff.
