Corinna Horton rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

The nose intrigues, notes of cherry, pepper, almond and burnt wood, I expected velvet on the mouth but got an iron mask as the alcohol content of the 37% Cabernet Franc completely overpowered both the Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. That was the first glass, then I got wise and decided to show this Meritage some respect and decant. Two hours of breathing and it opened up beautifully to reveal a black fruit driven, caramel creaminess that was much more in keeping with the winemaker's direction I'm sure. Three words of advice on this blend: decant, decant, decant. It's a wine that takes it's time.
