97 points James Suckling: "The sister winery to Harlan made wonderful, distinctive wines in 2010. The Quella is powerful, rich and savoury. Wait three or four years before drinking it. (6/10/14)"
96 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Saturated ruby-red. Deep yet vibrant aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, licorice and violet convey a faint medicinal reserve. Plush and deep but at the same time classically dry and savory, even a bit youthfully imploded, with its seamless black fruit, mineral and licorice flavors enlivened by a captivating cool herbal nuance. Really spreads out to saturate the palate on the very long, energetic, taut back end, which features thoroughly ripe, building tannins and compelling perfume. A great vintage for this wine. Drink: 2024-2040. (May 2020)"
96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2010 Quella is fabulous. Nuanced, delineated and yet also dense on the palate, the 2010 captures all the best qualities of this St. Helena site and the year. A rush of kirsch, super-ripe red cherry, hard candy and wild flowers add a kick of exotic intensity that is hugely appealing. A wine of charm and pure deliciousness, the 2010 will drink well for another 10-15 years. Today, it is fabulous. Drink: 2020-2040. (Nov 2017)"
