99 points James Suckling
The purity of fruit is fantastic with blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries and hints of walnut shell. Full-bodied, tight and very focused. Chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to come together. Try in 2022. (12/2018)
96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 St. Eden offers up expressive crème de cassis, black cherry compote and blueberry pie notes with hints of cedar chest, baking spices, menthol and pencil lead. Full-bodied, tightly packed, taut and muscular, it has a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and lovely vivacity coming through on the long, earthy finish. (LPB) (10/2017)
96 points Vinous
As it often is, the 2014 St. Eden is a showy, racy wine. A rush of dark red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and grilled herbs gives the wine its opulent, flamboyant feel. Even so the St. Eden shows the natural restraint and mid-weight structure of the year. (3/2018)
94 points Wine Spectator
Pure, rich and vibrant, with a tasty core of plum, blackberry, currant, anise and cedar flavors. Most impressive for the weight and refinement, remaining quite elegant and graceful despite the size. Best from 2020 through 2034. (JL) (8/2018)
