Deborah Podurgiel rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Well, this Meritage went down way too easy! Mission Hill's Reserve Meritage 2020 is a dry, medium-plus-bodied, very, very smooth and sultry blend of 42% Cabernet Franc, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot from two of the winery’s estate vineyards in Oliver and Osoyoos located on the hot, sunny and arid Black Sage Bench. This warm climate allows these Bordeaux varietals to ripen fully and completely.

Darkest red in the glass and lush on the nose and palate with raspberry compote, blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla, pepper and well-integrated oak spice filling the mid palate and finishing with a hint of flint, perfect acidity to match and rounded, velvety, fine-grained tannins. Excellent now, but the wine could easily cellar for another three to five years… probably not in my wine cellar though *(*. Tasted May 2022.

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.
