Winemaker Notes

The 2006 Bancroft Ranch Merlot is a rich garnet color, and brims with flavors of ripe black fruits, brown spices and a hint of orange zest. Its refined tannins and depth of flavor make it one of Beringer's most memorable wines from Howell Mountain.

Blend: 93% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Good deep red-ruby. Inviting nose offers plum, chocolate, graphite and nutty oak. Concentrated, sweet and deep; a step up in texture from the foregoing samples. Lush flavors of plum, minerals, tobacco, leather and earth. A big, rich, soil-inflected merlot that finishes with serious tannic clout. I would have scored this even higher had it showed a bit more lift and treble notes.
