[CEA dinner, lamb] Soaked in oak; lacks quality fruit. Black cherry, cedar, min plum, huge vanilla finish. Not bad for free. Would not buy a bottle for home.

...Nose dominated by cassis and black cherry. Dense but not fat; in fact, this rich, full merlot seems to be going into a shell today. Complicating notes of tar, licorice and minerals... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2001 Beringer Merlot Bancroft Ranch 750ml

Harmonious and complex, with ripe plum, cherry and currant flavors accented by smoky, mocha-scented oak, striking a fine balance. Shows ripe, integrated, firm tannins on the finish, where the flavors fold together nicely. Drink now through 2009. 3,20... Wine Spectator.
