Bryant Family 2002 750mL
(15.7% alcohol): Bright medium ruby. Distinctly candied, liqueur-like scents of dark berry pastille, licorice and violet; barely showing secondary scents today. Silky, hedonistic wine with incredible grain and depth and a compellingly sappy quality to its powerful berry fruit. An incredible fruit bomb with huge dusty tannins and outstanding rising length. There's something almost magically primary about this classically dry, superconcentrated wine, which, like a number of top 2002s, seems to be in a state of suspended animation today.
