Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A fresh and lively offering from the best value producer in Niagara. I've had Merlots like this from other vineyards, but at twice the price. Bright black plum, briar, linzer, and crushed flowers form the core of this wine, supported by a seemingly weightless frame. Some fresh tobacco and sarsaparilla notes come out after a few minutes in the glass. Truly dynamic. Shows the strength of the vintage. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Bre Paszkat rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A delightful Merlot with a brilliant garnet colour that offers berry and vanilla on the nose. The wine is ageing nicely, and the fruit is transforming to layers of plum, dark cherry, leather,spice and pepper on your palate. The french oak ageing is apparent. The tannin's are dominant and cellaring another 2-5 years will soften it. I would serve it with grilled lamb shanks, with a creamy mushroom risotto.
