2014 Carneros Chardonnay: 94 points, Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine 
"It may not claim single-site origin, but this mixed vineyard blend from Carneros is a deep and beautifully crafted Chardonnay that stands with the best of its winery mates. It draws one in with an irresistible sense of succulence then surprises with its depth, its layered complexity and its stunning fruit stamina, and it tastes in all ways like a far pricier wine than it is. It again demonstrates the accomplished Ram’s Gate hand at combining richness and fine balance, and, if its considerable immediate appeals can be resisted, it has the look of an ageworthy Chardonnay that will only get better over the course of the next three or four years."  

2013 Carneros Pinot Noir: 91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
‘‘Very much in the Ram's Gate fold insofar as it is deeply fruited and nicely balanced with fine Pinot Noir texture and the kind of careful structure of an eminently age-worthy wine, this one gets an extra nod of appreciation for being an over-achiever at the price. It is just a touch closed-in at the moment yet has all of the right pieces in place, and its light trim of finishing tannin does nothing to distract from its vital, very long-lasting fruit. It will not disappoint if poured in the near term, but we strongly encourage at least a few years of patience here.’’
