Matt Fowler rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A big burly red that is still very young. Aromas of dark fruit, cigar box, and cedar. Powerful tannin's are balanced with acidity. Great dark fruit in the mouth with great length. Enjoy it with a heavy decant. Buy in B.C. as the price in Ontario is expensive. Drink 2014-2019
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A bold expression of a blend; dark red fruit aromas, layered with pepper and woodsy cedar end in a spicy, lingering finish on the palate. The texture runs a fine balance between refreshing acidity and velvety tannin. Mmmmmm.

Painted Rock Estate Winery Ltd. Red Icon Named Varietal Blends-Red 2009, V.Q.A., Okanagan Valley, B.C., Canada: This is a spectacular blend of Bordeaux grapes: 30% merlot, 29% cabernet franc, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 15% petit sirah, 1% syrah. A heavy-hitter that gets more refined every year. This vintage has the caged power of a tiger stalking back and forth behind bars... decant it and you'll taste that gorgeously savage energy and concentration. Loaded with dark fruit and toasty oak. This wine spent 18 months in 95% new French oak. Unleash your inner tiger and slake more than your thirst with this wine. Drink: 2012-2019. 284190 14.30% XD 750 mL  $55.00 Score: 97/100.
