97-98 points James Suckling
Blackberry, blueberry and forest-floor undertones. Great perfumes. Full body, polished and velvety tannins, and yet this is refined and focused. Wonderful texture and length. Savory and citrusy. Fantastic. (1/2017)
96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Quella is scented of blackberry preserves, fruitcake and crushed rocks with hints of cigar box, dried Provence herbs and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and great freshness lifting the black fruit and earth layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. (LPB) (1/2017)
96 points Vinous
The 2014 Quella is showing beautifully. Floral and savory overtones give the wine its energy and tension. The 2014 has really come along over the last six months. Today it is vibrant and full of life, with an understated sense of power that is compelling. The 2014 has developed very nicely since I last tasted it, but it still has room to grow. 96+ (AG) (1/2018)
