Pedestal Merlot - Wine Advocate

 "Opaque purple in color, this superb Merlot offers a classic perfume of pain grille, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. This is followed by a rich, intensely flavored wine with great depth, concentration, and length."

Pedestal Merlot - Connoisseurs' Guide

 "Focus first on the incredible depth and richness on display here and then marvel at the way in which polish and tannic grip exist side by side."

Pedestal Merlot - Wine Spectator

 "Dense and focused, yet balances deftly enough to let the currant, cherry and black raspberry fruit pierce through a veil of crisp tannins. Has a power without excessive weight. The finish lingers extraordinarily well."
