94 Points Jeb Dunnuck 

"Including 23% Malbec, the 2016 Merlot Reserve is brilliant and offers a vivid purple/ruby color as well as a smoking bouquet of black cherries, cassis, tobacco, smoke earth, and cedary spice, Full-bodied, rounded, supple and seamless, it has polished tannin, beautiful purity, and a great finish. It's a rockingly good Merlot from this estate to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years."

92 Points Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Merlot Reserve, deep ruby-purple in the glass, is intensely scented of cassis, black plum, blueberries and blackberries with notes of blackcurrant bud, cedar, clove and violet. Medium to full-bodied, it's bold and broody in the mouth with firm, grainy tannins and satisfying freshness to lift the long, sweet-spice finish."
