Jeb Dunnuck - 96 Points: "The Merlot-dominated 2017 Merlot Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard (there’s 4% Cabernet Franc in the blend) is also straight-up brilliant, showing tons of ripe black cherry, chocolate, coffee bean, and truffly herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and powerful, it has the same elegant tannin structure found in the Proprietary Red, nicely integrated acidity, terrific purity, and a great finish. It’s not for those looking for massive richness and decadence, but it has a purity, elegance, and minerality that makes it a joy to drink."

Vinous - 93 Points: "The 2017 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is dense, plush and super-expressive; the juiciness of Merlot comes through nicely here. Black cherry, chocolate, licorice, menthol and gravel are front and center. A dollop of Cabernet Franc adds lovely savouriness and aromatic nuance. This is such a pretty and layered wine with tons of near- and medium-term appeal. Overall, the 2017 is a bit smaller scaled in build than normal, but it is a big success for a vintage that was especially challenging for Merlot."
