  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Deep ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis, minerals, flowers, eucalyptus and a hint of game on the complex nose. Dense, layered and very rich, but bright and delineated. Really terrific fruit and firm underlying backbone. Finishes extremely long and powerful, with more than enough fruit to support substantial tannins. Stains the palate. Perhaps even richer than the superb '94 Bancroft Ranch merlot.

    One of Beringer's newest projects is to expand the top of their portfolio, offering limited quantities (approximately 200 case lots) of single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons from the different terroirs. Other wines to look for from the single-vineyard collection series include the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Bancroft Vineyard. This opaque purple-colored wine offers toasty, smoky oak in its nose, as well as the tell-tale cassis and mineral aromas that emerge from Howell Mountain wines. Rich, powerful, full-bodied flavors, and excellent purity and sweetness of fruit further characterize this broad-shouldered wine. There is also plenty of tannin, suggesting it will require 3-4 years of cellaring after its release.

    This is an ultraripe yet sturdy wine, supported by firm tannins wrapped around the core of ripe plum, currant, prune and mineral nuances. It fairly gushes with rich flavors, yet is also quite powerful, with a long, detailed aftertaste.
