92 points, Wine Enthusiast, May 2007: "This wine is compact and tannic, but not over-built or chalky. It clearly demonstrates the underlying iron and mineral character of Red Mountain, and despite its youth it drinks well with a bit of breathing time. This is a wine that should continue to evolve nicely in bottle for up to a decade."

90 points, Wine Enthusiast, May 2007: "A seductive, creamy and mouthfilling Bordeaux blend. The buttery, caramel flavors pour over the ripe, cherry-flavored fruit like butterscotch on pie. It's a ripe, open style that may well be the consumer favorite of this excellent trio of releases from a very promising new winery."
 
90 points, Wine Advocate, August 2007: "Dark ruby-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of vanilla, cedar, clove, cranberry, cassis, and black currants. This leads to a plush wine with excellent depth of flavor, and excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. This nicely balanced wine has enough structure to evolve for several years and should drink well through 2024."

91 points, Wine Enthusiast, May 2007: "[This] is the most fruit-driven and forward of the three [2004 releases], and the well-matched vineyard blend puts the focus on the varietal character of the grape, using the different terroirs to create a complete wine. Very sophisticated handling of the different lots creates a whole that is worthy of its parts."
