Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

Good deep ruby-red. Cassis, dark berries and dark chocolate on the nose, plus hints of coffee and cinnamon. Smooth, supple and intensely flavored; suave and sweet. Finishes with tongue-coating but rather soft tannins and palate-staining, expanding fruit flavor.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Aromas of earth, clay and currant turn rich and loamy on the palate. This is a dense, concentrated young wine that either needs decanting or a little more cellar time. On the finish it reveals a rich core of cherry and currant, finishing with muscular tannins.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. 200 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The 1995 Merlot Bancroft Ranch exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, followed by a stunning nose of chocolate, minerals, black cherries, and toast. A serious, mountain-styled Merlot, it displays full body, outstanding concentration and purity, and moderate tannin. It needs to be cellared for another 2-3 years, but will last 15 years.

Wine Varietal: Merlot

Merlot shares many of the same profile descriptors as Cabernet Sauvignon including plum, blackberry, chocolate and mocha. Bordeaux's Right Bank, such as in Pomerol and St.-Emilion, is the traditional home to this red grape, but it is grown all over the world. Merlot is either bottled on its own or is blended with other red grapes.
