Frostwatch Merlot is quickly becoming a benchmark for New World Merlot production. Among other accolades, the 2011 received a 91 point score from the Wine Spectator at a price point of $30/bottle. The other eight wines that received scores between 90-92 points averaged about $81/bottle.  The 2012 vintage received a 91 point score from the Wine Spectator and received a double gold medal from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. It also received 91 points from the Wine Enthusiast and was picked as one of the top 100 wines from Sonoma County in 2015. Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate tasted the 2013 vintage and in March 2016 scored it at 94 points. He wrote “[it] has an impressive opaque purple color and offers a big blast of fudge and black chocolate along with a dense cherry and blackberry fruit. Unctuously textured, full bodied and rather classic for Merlot, this has a super concentrated style that one rarely sees these days. This is a gorgeous Merlot built for 20+ years of consumption. Actually, it hearkens back to some of the great early Matanzas Creek Merlots from the early 1990’s. This is a stunner.” Mr. Parker nailed this one. The wine is an impressive, yet balanced effort that will continue to improve in the bottle for many years
