91 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Syrah Ballard Canyon Estate Reserve emerges from the higher altitude parcels on the property. Firm beams of tannin give the Reserve much of its energy and overall tension. Violet, lavender and spice overtones develop in the glass, but the Reserve is above all else a wine of structure. Accordingly, it needs to be cellared for at least a year or two to allow the tannins to soften and the 60% new oak to integrate a bit more fully. All things considered, the two Syrahs are not markedly different." -AG (08/15)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Light gold. Spicy orange zest, pear and melon on the fragrant, mineral-accented nose. Dry and tightly wound, offering vibrant Meyer lemon and orchard fruit flavors with a deeper note of nectarine. Finishes stony and long, with building floral character and tangy persistence, leaving nervy citrus zest and mineral notes behind." - Josh Raynolds (September 2014)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Deep red. Oak-spiced aromas of ripe cherry and blackberry, with notes of vanilla and coconut building in the glass. Still showing a youthfully oaky character to the sweet dark fruit, mocha and vanilla flavors. Clings with very good smoky intensity and persistence, with dusty tannins adding shape." - Josh Raynolds (November 2015)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Vivid ruby. A smoke- and spice-accented bouquet evokes candied cherry, cassis, violet and vanilla. Sweet and penetrating, offering lively cherry and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. The smoke and floral notes come back on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a hint of mocha. - Josh Raynolds (September 2014)

88 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Conde San Cristobal is fresh and soft, an easy to drink blend of 80% Tempranillo and 10% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot matured in different sized barrels. The nose is clean and perfumed, and the palate is medium-bodied with some tannins. It will go nicely with food. 300,000 bottles produced." - Luis Gutierrez (Oct 2015)

98 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, Paleo opens with concentrated, sweet-smelling aromas of plum, cherry and cinnamon, which translate to the palate with added notes of spice, leather and tobacco. This is bold, opulent and delicious, and it’s guaranteed to please. Hold for 10 years or more." - (4/1/2013)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(roughly 45% pinot noir, 35% pinot meunier and 20% chardonnay): Bright orange-pink. Spicy cherry, red berries, blood orange and five-spice powder on the perfumed nose. Fleshy but dry, boasting excellent energy to its bitter cherry, redcurrant and floral pastille flavors. Finishes smooth and fleshy, with very good breadth and cling. The turnaround over the last few years at this house, now under the guidance of chef de cave Benoit Gouez, has been remarkable." -Josh Raynolds (Dec 13)

94-96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The full-bodied 2013 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate exhibits more honeyed melon, mango and cooler tropical fruits than the Ellen Lane or Edward James. Drink now-2021." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2014)

90-92 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate is quite beautiful in this vintage. Once again, the overall impression is of roundness, texture and mostly soft contours, with a little extra kick from the vibrancy of the vintage. Hints of orange peel, butter and smoke are laced into the expressive, pliant finish." - Antonio Galloni (January 2015)

94 Points, #28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2015 - Wine Spectator:
"The core glows with ripe blackberry, dark plum, mint and floral flavors, gliding over lightly prickly tannins into the long and compelling finish. Feels almost weightless, but has tremendous depth. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2020. 1,219 cases made." –HS (Sep 30, 2015)
