91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"At first, there’s a slight green herb funkiness of sharp dill on the nose of this single-vineyard offering from the Jackson Family-owned Cambria brand, where Santa Maria native Denise Shurtleff has made the wine since 1999. Once sipped, that evolves into a nice smokiness that sits atop tart green apple and Asian pear." — Matt Kettmann (9/1/2014)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A small step up over the Katherine’s Vineyard, the 2012 Chardonnay Bench Break shows slightly more toasty oak in its apple and orchard fruits, white flowers and hints of nuttiness. Full-bodied, rich and layered, it’s a big, full-flavored effort that stays beautifully balanced and pure. Spending roughly 10 months in 57% new French oak, enjoy bottles over the coming 3-4 years." — Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2014)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A fresh, juicy cherry note is enlivened by spice and savory mineral elements in this lean yet firm red. Remains harmonious and persistent, featuring a long, spice-tinged aftertaste. Shows excellent potential. Best from 2016 through 2032. 1,650 cases made. " – BS (May 31, 2013)

96 Points - James Suckling:
"One of the best Tignanellos ever made. Aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body with fine tannins and a refined finish. A red that delivers balance and beauty. Rich and gorgeous. Blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Better in 2015." -James Suckling (November 7th, 2013)

89-91 Robert Parker's WIne Advocate:
"The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Sous Le Dos d’Ane has a refined bouquet with subtle scents of almond and white chocolate tincturing the tightly wound bouquet. The palate is refined, almost introspective on the entry. It is well-balanced with fine acidity, though it remains very focused and linear. There finish is bright and vivacious with citrus lemon and sour lemon lining the long finish. Very fine." - Neal Martin (December 2013)

100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes. (Note: The Chateau Montrose website gives an aging potential of 2020-2100.)" -Robert Parker (Aug 2014)

97 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rock solid, displaying a dense core of plum, steeped currant and braised fig fruit, with racy charcoal and ganache notes. Intensely chalky, offering flesh and refinement to match the bracing minerality, this shows hints of grilled savory, iron, warm paving stone and bitter orange on the riveting finish. Should age very slowly. Best from 2019 through 2038." -JM (Mar 31, 2013)

97 Points - James Suckling:
"A perfumed and pure Montrose, with lots of currants, berries and spices that evolve to chocolate and light coffee. Full body, with super racy tannins and bright and clean finish. Very fine and structured. A balance and freshness to it all as well as beautiful form and tension. Try in 2018." -James Suckling (November 14th, 2013)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is such an elegant wine that has all the structure of the vintage. Surrounding the tannins, the wine is sweet and ripe, with smokiness from the wood. It’s powerful, elegant and sophisticated with a strong sense of poise. The tannins promise long-term aging." -Roger Voss (5/1/2013)

94(+?) Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright, deep ruby-red. Superripe, deep aromas of black raspberry, cassis, plum, minerals, licorice and bitter chocolate. Densely packed, elegant and classically dry, with creamy depth of dark fruit and mineral flavors given definition and cut by terrific vinosity. This compellingly pure, extract-rich wine showed increasing energy as it opened in the glass. Finishes with big, dusty tannins and outstanding length and perfume. A great vintage for Montrose, in a modern style. Following the first couple vintages made under the direction of Jean Delmas, the '09 and '10 have shown considerably more stuffing. I would not be at all surprised if my score proved to be overly conservative." -Stephen Tanzer (Jul/Aug 13)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Things start heating up with the awesome 2009 Pagos Viejos, which is a blend of Juan Carlos's old plots of vine. It demands coaxing from the glass, the broody dark berry, licorice-tinged fruit remaining bashful under a cloak of French oak, but intimating something alluring ten years down the line. The palate is full-bodied with a silky smooth texture, the oak singing from the same hymn sheet as the precocious fruit that is underpinned by super-fine tannins. It offers weightless intensity. The Pagos Viejos has fine symmetry and poise towards the finish with a just a faint tang of Seville orange marmalade on the aftertaste. Everything is in place - just add time. Drink 2018-2030." -Neal Martin (Aug 2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Felino Chardonnay is whole-cluster pressed from vines planted in Lujan de Cuyo, Tupungato and San Carlos, fermented in stainless steel with oak staves and indigenous yeasts. It has a bright, pale yellow color and a clean nose with citric notes, white flowers, no traces of oak and balsamic notes of bay leaf, a medium to full-bodied palate with equally clean, well-defined citric flavors of aromatic herbs and a touch of spices. Drink now-2017." -Luis Gutierrez (Apr 2014)

"Dark, toasty and jammy, sporting dense wild berry compote, charred apple wood, melted licorice and mocha notes. Big, with a long, broad finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases made." -NW (Nov 15, 2013)
