Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Another medium to full-bodied, lightly textured, elegant effort is the 2013 Perfectionist. Made from 68% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and 15% Grenache, it shows plenty of Mourvedre savoriness to go with ample red and black fruits, smoked meats and a touch of olive tapenade. Like all of Matt's 2013s, it's seamless and perfectly balanced, with lots to love. Drink it anytime over the coming 8-10 years.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Polished, plump and well-structured, with rose petal, dark raspberry and crushed rock aromas leading to layered flavors of plum, roasted anise and smoky cracked pepper. Syrah, MourvAdre and Grenache."Author: Tim Fish
Rating: 94Opaque ruby. Complex, assertively perfumed bouquet of ripe black and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastilles, with mineral and cola nuances coming up slowly. Sweet, concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Distinctly suave and seamless wine with wonderful closing focus and persistence and gentle framing tannins. - Josh Raynolds
