JEB DUNNUCK 94 POINTS - "The 300-case 2016 Merlot is another winner. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, concentrated, and beautifully textured, it has wonderful notes of ripe black cherries, tobacco, and earth as well as a distinct gravelly minerality. It's well worth seeking out and will deliver the goods for 10-15 years."

ANTONIO GALLONI 93+ POINTS - "Arietta's 2016 Merlot Hudson Vineyards is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Powerful and savory, the Merlot packs a real punch. Black cherry, grilled herbs, graphite and menthol add character to this decidedly brooding wine. Far from an easygoing Merlot, the 2016 at Arietta is going to need a few years to come into its own, and will drink beautifully for many years beyond that."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93+ POINTS - "Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Merlot has a captivating nose of crushed red and black plums, Black Forest cake and underbrush with hints of spice cake and dried mint. Full-bodied, plushly textured and packed with warm black fruits and baking spices in the mouth, it has a long peppery finish."
