93 points "A big, rich, extracted style, with a gutsy core of currant, pencil lead, earth and plum. Full-bodied from start to finish, with a long, detailed aftertaste, mouthcoating tannins and touches of herb, cedar and spice. Builds momentum. Drink now through 2012. 800 cases made. (JL)" Best 2003-2012

95 points "The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is an amazing tour de force. Quality like this was rare, if not impossible to obtain in 2000. From bottle, the wine is performing even better than it did from cask. The color is an opaque black/ruby/purple, and the amazing aromatic concoction includes notes of melted licorice, minerals, smoky toast, and blackberry as well as cassis liqueur. Full-bodied, thick, and juicy, it is a voluptuous effort to drink now and over the next 15-16 years. It is a brilliant achievement, surpassed by none, and equaled only by a few other northern California 2000s." Best 2003-2019

" 92-94 points from Parker: 'The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is a candidate for "wine of the vintage." It boasts a saturated black/purple color as well as a sexy, up-front nose of melted licorice intermixed with creosote, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, and graphite scents. It is layered, opulent, full-bodied, and atypically accessible for a young Bryant Cabernet, with low acidity and exceptional length. This remarkable effort will be one of the easiest to drink as well as fastest to evolve Bryants made to date. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. (Aug-02)'"
