2002 Beringer "Bancroft Ranch" Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1044025 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark ($75; includes bits of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good medium ruby. Aromas of plum, dark raspberry and chocolate; slightly liqueur-like. Then fat, full and sweet in the mouth, with concentrated dark fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length. This, too, needs time. This vintage is still from old vines, but Beringer is in the process of replanting this vineyard. Inner quote mark (6/2006)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark However, for starters there is the 2002 Merlot Bancroft Ranch. This vineyard, which was completely replanted because of the phylloxera epidemic, is blended with a little Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has proven to be a textbook, high quality source of Merlot. The 2002 exhibits notes of black cherry and mocha-infused fruit intermixed with a hint of toasty oak, medium to full body, and a plump, juicy, succulent style. Drink this classic Merlot over the next 3-4 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2012)
