92 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas and flavors of dark fruit, mint and toasted oak. A little too much new wood. But the palate is compelling with a pretty depth of fruit and intensity. Better in 2019." - (May 29, 2017)

97+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Run Rig opens with a bang, delivering intense fruits of the forest and blackberry preserve notes with hints of sandalwood, cardamom, dried Provence herbs, Indian spices and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and oh, so satisfying, the beauty ticks all the great Barossa Shiraz boxes and then some. It is still relatively primary, so I’d recommend giving it another 2-3 years at least in bottle and drink it over the next 20+." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Aug 2017)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2014 Chardonnay is bright, focused and finely-cut. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2014 much of its lifted, mid-weight personality. As always, the Montelena Chardonnay is done in a brisk, dry style, with blocked malolactic fermentation." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2016)

"A focused line of lemon balm meets with gardenia, soft jasmine, light butterscotch and green tea on the nose of this county blend by Colombian-born, French-trained Winemaker Bibiana González Rave. Lemon, light vanilla and a touch of warm pastry show on the palate." - Matt Kettmann (9/1/2017)
