I would place the numbers and labels into the same cell and add a line
break (using the "\line" literal in RTF). Here is an example:

eststo clear
sysuse auto, clear
by foreign: eststo: reg price weight
by foreign: eststo: reg price weight mpg

esttab using test.rtf, replace nonumbers ///
    mlabels("(1a)\line w/o Controls"  ///
            "(1b)\line with Controls" ///
            "(2a)\line w/o Controls"  ///
            "(2b)\line with Controls" ///
    ) ///
    mgroups("blahblahblah1" "blahblahblah2", pattern(1 0 1 0))

Unfortunately, -esttab- does not support spanning columns in RTF mode.
You'd have to hand-edit that in your word processing software.
