92/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2014 Vintage)
"Hätsch Kalberer weaves together fruit from Brancott Valley and Wairau Valley in Marlborough, for this wine. Like that smoke, graphite, slate-edged perfume, though briary, brambly dark berries sit underneath. Palate has tension, transparency, purity of fruit yet a savoury edge reminiscent of chewy grape skins. Gloss and freshness finishes the wine. Kind of moody in its dark fruit and cloak of fine tannin. Trill of truffle and earth finishes and fresh-medium weight pinot noir."
94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2015 (2014 Vintage)​
"Elegant, poised and fragrant on the nose; aromas of ripe cherry, floral and almond with hints of game and mushroom complexity. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and silky texture, beautifully enhanced by layers of ripe fruit flavours and subtle savoury undertones, finishing long and finely dry. Stylish and attractive, and pristine and complex at the same time. At its best: now to 2022. Certified organic."
92/100 Bob Campbell, January 2016 (2014 Vintage)​
"Elegant and reasonably powerful Pinot Noir with spicy cherry, smoky oak and violet flavours. A firmly structured wine that can be appreciated now but deserves to be matched with food. Good cellaring potential."
4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan​, November 2015 (2014 Vintage)​
"Dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and up-front with ripe fruit aroma of dark red berry and cherry fruit entwined with subtle layers of herbs, revealing raspberry liqueur and mineral elements. The aromatics build in depth and concentration in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate features soft, plush and juicy fruit flavours of dark raspberries with lifted dark red florals and subtle layers of herbs and minerals. The fruit forms a gently sweet and rich core with fine-textured, supple concentration and structure, and a fresh, acid driven line. Flavours of liquorice, black cherries and minerals show on a lingering, dry, firm finish. This is a fresh, juicy, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with a fine-textured core and fresh mouthfeel. Match with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry, pork and antipasto over the next 4-5+ years. 11 clones, predominantly 115, 667, 777, 5, 6 and 10/5, from the ‘Fromm’, Wairau, ‘Clayvin’ Brancott Valley, ‘Quarters’, Brancott Valley and ‘Yarrum’, Brancott Valley vineyards, vines 10-24 y.o., destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 75% whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 2-3 weeks on skins and aged 16 months in 12-15% new barriques. Certified BioGro organic." 
90/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2016 (2014 Vintage)​
"Pale to medium ruby-purple coloured, the 2014 La Strada Pinot Noir is beautifully scented of warm cranberries, raspberry tart and kirsch with hints of garrique, dried herbs and forest floor. It fills the palate with perfumed, earth and kirsch laced flavours with satiny tannins and great freshness, finishing long."
90/100 Wine Spectator (2014 Vintage)​
"Distinctive blood orange and cherry flavours are bright and crisp, with plenty of spice and sandalwood accents on a plush, velvety frame, lingering beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2028."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"This wine is made to be ready for drinking upon release, by 'steering the fermentation towards more fruit expression and moderate tannins and structure'. Certified organic, the youthful 2014 vintage is a multi-site blend. Bright ruby, it is a graceful wine, fragrant and supple, with moderately rich, well-ripened plum, cherry and spice flavours, fine-grained tannins, and excellent complexity and harmony. Best drinking 2017+."
