Vinous: 94 Points

The 2019 Merlot Hudson Vineyards is packed with dark plum fruit, chocolate and a whole range of cool-climate savory notes that add complexity as well as nuance. The Hudson Merlot is one of the most distinctive wines in Napa Valley, but it needs cellaring to be at its best. These are the oldest vines on Lee Hudson's property.

Jeb Dunnuck: 93 Points

Lots of up-front black cherry, currants, leafy herbs, and violet/flower notes, as well as a hints of marine-like salinity and iron, emerge from the 2019 Merlot Hudson Vineyards, another medium to full-bodied, pure, beautifully balanced wine. It too should keep for over a decade. 332 cases.

James Suckling: 93 Points

 Aromas of ripe plums, chocolate, walnuts, tobacco leaf and hazelnuts. Some orange zest, too. It’s full-bodied with plush tannins and a fleshy texture. Deliciously creamy. 100% merlot. Drink now or hold.

Wine Advocate: 92 Points

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Merlot Hudson Vineyards prances out of the glass with notions of stewed black plums, blueberries and boysenberries, plus hints of star anise, bay leaves and tilled loam. Full-bodied, soft and juicy, the palate has bags of bright black fruits with a lively line and lifted finish.
