Big, ripe, rich and tannic, packing in lots of currant, herb, cedar and spice notes and adding a toasty, smoky, woody overlay. An intense young wine that's firmer and more tannic than earlier Beringer Bancroft Merlots, but has a wonderful array of flavors.
Beringer continues to do everything right. Its staff of talented professionals may rank as the best in the business. Beringer's Merlot from the Bancroft Vineyard on Howell Mountain is one of the top three or four California Merlots. The dark ruby-colored 1990 Merlot-Bancroft Vineyard displays attractive spicy oak intermingled with scents of ripe red and black fruits, medium to full body, and a rich, sweet, long finish. It is less muscular than the nearly outstanding 1989. (RP)
