97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled, the 2018 Ermitage Ex Voto brings another level of purity and precision, as well as concentration. Deep purple-hued, with brilliant cassis and blue fruits as well as liquid rock-like minerality, it has perfectly integrated oak, flawless tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great, great finish. I wrote “heavenly stuff” in my notes. This will require a solid decade of bottle age and should have 30-40 years of longevity if stored correctly. (2/16/22)"

96-98 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "To my mind, the 2018 Ermitage Ex Voto represents something of a breakthrough for this cuvée. Marked by an intense crème de framboise character, it offers fabulous fruit and tremendous concentration without any sense of heaviness. It's full-bodied but comes across as silky and lacy in structure, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Bravo. Drink: 2025-2040. (Dec 2019)"
