1994 Bryant Family

Four of us had a small wine tasting this past Thursday evening, and all wines were tasted blind. The generous person who brought this 1994 Bryant Cali cult wine drove about 100 miles to attend our tasting.

The wine was poured into the glass and appeared to be an older wine. The taste was dark cherry and blueberries, with smoke, spices, mint/cedar, and chocolate, but it didn't possess the concentration, structure, or depth that I would expect from a 1994 Cali Cult, and I think this bottle was prematurely ageing!

He said he bought the bottle about 5 years ago, so provenance is in question. However, if you have more than one bottle of the 1994 Bryant in your cellar, I think you should try one immediately. However, if you only have one bottle, you should check other reviews, as perhaps this bottle was ageing prematurely.

As for a score, perhaps a 91/93, but I would've preferred to taste this before it started to slide.
