The finest red of any vintage I've ever had. Perfect the second it hit my mouth and didn't disappoint minutes after the sip. Enjoyed it with a fine Filet at a top steak house.
An excellent wine, especially for the price. Up front fruity blend of cassis, blackberry and dark cherries, but not overblown. Nicely balanced with pleasant mouthfeel. Complex and layered tannins come on gradually , but are'nt gigantic like some other reserve wines. My favorite of the 95s.
Super black cherry,blackberry,plum with hints of herb and toasted cedar. Simply delicious! Good Gwyn matchback.

This effort was a little zoopy, lacking the finesse and power of the Sbragia vineyard designated efforts of other years and grape varieties. Bancroft Ranch has in recent years exemplefied the preeminence of Beringer as a winery capable of trancendent, sublime efforts...for example in the 93 through 95 Bancroft ranch Merlots or the opulent 94 and 95 cabernets. But here Sbragia has fallen short. He gives us a rather undistinguishsed, pedestrian cab with a sweltering tannic backbone and insufficient fruit to stand up to any aging. We can only hope for better efforts in the future from this notable establishment.
