96+ Points - Wine Advocate
"Even deeper colored, the 2014 Walla Walla Reserve checks in as a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, and 8% Petit Verdot. Its vibrant purple color is followed by sensational notes of crème de cassis, graphite, lead pencil shavings and hints of damp herbs. Rich, full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated, tannic and impeccably balanced, it's unquestionably one of the gems in this vintage. It needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and will keep for two decades or more." -JD, 6/30/17

94 Points - Vinous Media
"Bright, deep ruby-red. Less precise on the nose than the Cabernet Sauvignon but riper, offering scents of cassis, black cherry and brambly purple berries complicated by a note of licorice pastille. Wonderfully creamy in the middle, showing more obvious fruit than the Cabernet but with lovely framing energy. Finishes very strong and long, with fully ripe, suave, slowly mounting tannins saturating the entire palate. Figgins included a bit of young-vines fruit from his steep, high-density Serra Pedace planting on rocky soil at 1,450 feet at SeVein. On first taste, this wine impressed with its plushness but it quickly closed down in the glass. It should be long-lived. Figgins noted that some Cabernet Franc can make it into this blend in cool years, but not in 2014." -ST, 10/2017

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Rich and precise, balancing plush flavors with a firm, refined structure. The blackberry espresso and black olive accents finish with big but polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2019 through 2025. 1,119 cases made." -TF, 7/31/17

93 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot from Seven Hills, Loess, Mill Creek Upland and Serra Pedace vineyards. Aromas of fresh herbs, scorched earth, mineral, and red and black fruit—slightly dried-out-seeming—lead to a silky textured concentrated palate. The tannins are there but are beautifully integrated. It shows plenty of hang time on the finish. It should have a good 15 years in front of it. Best from 2024–2030." -SS, 9/1/17
