International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($85) Good full medium ruby. Subdued but complex aromas of currant, plum and smoked meat. Round and ripe, with plum and mineral flavors complicated by an exotic floral note. Fat and sweet but not at all over the top. Finishes with substantial broad tannins and excellent length.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2005
Wine Spectator | Rating: 85Firm, intense and tannic, with a rich, concentrated mix of red currant, black cherry and plum-laced fruit. Tightly wound, it unfolds to exhibit hints of mineral, cedar and anise. On the finish, though, the tannins are gripping and dominant.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 88The tannic, hard, but well-endowed 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Bancroft Ranch is difficult to penetrate. It is a classic Howell Mountain Cabernet that requires plenty of time in the bottle.Author: Robert Parker
