Critical Acclaim

SP95+ Wine Spectator Aug 31, 2006

"An amazing barrel sample. Rich and plush, with a concentrated mix of ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry flavors that are tightly focused and persistent, with a long, detailed finish. Caressing texture." (95–100 pts.)

RP93 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Jun 2015

"Certainly a somewhat mythical estate, planted by Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer and owned by Don Bryant of St. Louis, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is an outstanding wine, but not in the league of some of their classics that have been produced. For example, the 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2007, 2010 and more recent vintages, 2012 and 2013 are all superior to this 2005. Somewhat loosely knit for Bryant, this wine has relatively lofty alcohol and seems to be close to full maturity. ) Lots of blackberry and cassis fruit as well as a touch of kirsch are present in this soft, full-bodied, sexy wine, which still has a rather inky garnet/purple color. It doesn’t have the complexity of the greatest vintages of Bryant, but it’s delicious, and certainly on its own merits, worthy of any serious connoisseurs attention. Drink it now and over the next 12–15 years. " (93 pts.)

VN95+ Vinous May 2017

"Bright, full red-ruby. Delightfully floral and cool on the nose following the 2004, offering good mineral lift to the aromas of red berries, licorice and rose petal. Clearly tighter than the ’04, in a much more classic style but still youthfully imploded, showing a subtle salinity to its redcurrant and raspberry flavors. There’s compelling sweetness here but a less glyceral texture than some of the richest vintages. Boasts outstanding structure for long-term aging, though, finishing very young, savory and long, with firm tannic spine and hints of hoisin sauce and spices." (95+ pts.)

RP90+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Dec 2007

"The 2005 continues to exhibit a European-styled finesse, elegance, and a certain austerity. The wine also shows considerable new oak, lots of acidity, which is almost atypical for this vineyard site, and a deep ruby/purple color with notes of cedar, bay leaf, cigar box, and copious quantities of black currant liqueur. It is a streamlined, classic, but slightly austere style for Bryant. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2025." (90–92 pts.)

SP94 Wine Spectator Oct 31, 2008

"Elegant and stylish, with ripe, vivid black cherry, currant, wild berry and black olive flavors that gain depth and vibrancy, picking up body and complexity and ending with a long, lingering finish that keeps repeating the fruit and cedary oak themes. Best from 2011 through 2017." (94 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
