Vinous 95 Points: ”Arietta’s 2018 Merlot Hudson Vineyard shows the cool, savory style of Carneros. Dried herbs, licorice, menthol, gravel and spice lend striking aromatic complexity throughout. This is an especially savory, nuanced style. The 2018 is a fabulous wine that will challenge readers’ conceptions of what Napa Valley Merlot is all about. The Arietta wine emerges from the oldest vines Merlot vines at Hudson, planted in 1986.”
Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points: “Lots of ripe black cherries, redcurrants, green tobacco, and cedar emerge from the 2018 Merlot Hudson Vineyards. Medium to full-bodied and nicely concentrated, with a soft spine of acidity and great tannins, this beautiful, complex, classic Merlot has plenty of up-front appeal, yet it should also evolve gracefully for 10-15 years.”
