  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    As for recent Bancroft Vineyard Merlots, the 1991 boasts a huge nose of chocolate and nearly over-ripe black-cherries, with some oak and herbs adding to the bouquet's complexity. The wine is full-bodied, with a layered, opulent personality, super-ripeness, and a heady, chocolatey finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Young and complex, with layers of cherry, currant, chocolate and buttery oak that all fold together neatly. Flavors fan out on the finish, where it picks up a pretty vanilla edge. Has the tannins to age another three to five years, but it drinks well now. 11,000 cases made.
