International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($75) Good medium red-ruby. Nose dominated by cassis and black cherry. Dense but not fat; in fact, this rich, full merlot seems to be going into a shell today. Complicating notes of tar, licorice and minerals. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a strong chocolatey flavor.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 157

The biggest, most backward effort among the Merlot-based cuvees is the impressively endowed 2001 Merlot Bancroft Ranch. It boasts a dark ruby/purple color in addition to a fragrant bouquet of earth, chocolate, black cherries, blackberries, and coffee. Give it another 1-3 years of bottle age and consume it over the following 10-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

(Private Reserve) Harmonious and complex, with ripe plum, cherry and currant flavors accented by smoky, mocha-scented oak, striking a fine balance. Shows ripe, integrated, firm tannins on the finish, where the flavors fold together nicely. 3,200 cases made.
