86 Points Robert Parker
Finding high quality New World Merlot is often difficult, but Cimicky's competent 2000 Merlot (aged for 16 months in French oak) is an above average effort. It offers lovely sweet berry fruit, medium body, and pleasing density, but a simple, straightforward style. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
