Lori Kilmartin WSET3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Plenty of dark fruit and some substantial tannins. Aromas and flavours of black currant, spice and a touch of cedar. Medium to full body, with medium acidity and a short finish. Pair with grilled burgers and caramelized onions!
Melissa Pulvermacher reviewed this wine as follows:

The 2015 Las Mulas Merlot is extremely fruit-forward with plum, vanilla and sweet spice. Silky tannins derived from the 6 months of French oak maturation.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Blackberry, ripe plum, a touch of green herb in the aroma and a palate of juicy red fruit and medium plus acidity.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Herbal, smokey, stewed dark cherry notes feature on the nose and palate. Full bodied, with a dense, slightly chewy structure and firm tannins. Fairly short, with a distinctive, vegetal finish.

Natalie's Review

Las Mulas Reserva Organic Merlot 2015, Central Valley, Chile: Deep, deep black plum, fleshy, rich and enveloping. Fold up and have a nap inside this wine, wake up satisfied sensorily.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
