91 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Bright ruby. Powerful cherry, floral pastille and sassafras scents, along with notes of cracked pepper and musky herbs. Sweet and penetrating, offering juicy blackberry and cherry compote flavors that pick up a smoky quality with air. Closes smooth, spicy and long, with supple tannins coming on late and folding smoothly into the wine's sweet dark fruit."

90 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"An excellent choice for drinking over the next few years, the 2010 Merlot Estate is juicy, expressive and beautiful. The 2010 vibrancy and freshness is there, and adds lovely balance to the expressive fruit. The 2010 delivers plenty of Ridge personality. Best of all, readers will neither need to wait for years nor spend huge sums to find pleasure."

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Here’s a rich, softly delicious wine. It has luxurious cherry, red currant and sweet licorice flavors, wrapped into firm tannins, and brightened with Ridge’s typically bright acidity. Not a long-term ager, but a perfect example of what young Merlot can do in California. Drink now-2016."
