94-97 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There was no 2005 or 2006 Finca Bellavista because of hail. A barrel sample of the 2007 Finca Bella Vista, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1910, is super-perfumed with aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, floral notes, and mineral that is already revealing complexity. The wine is impeccably balanced, has an elegant personality despite its size, layers of flavor, and a very lengthy finish. Give it five years in the cellar and drink it from 2013 to 2030." (12/08)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Very dense but supersleek, with gorgeous boysenberry and raspberry confiture notes stitched together by melted licorice, black tea and fruitcake notes. The long finish just glides along despite its obvious weight. Shows impressive precision and balance. Drink now through 2015. 753 cases made." (07/09)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated bright ruby. Very ripe aromas of blackberry and licorice. Broad, sweet and lush: the richest and most generous of the three 2007 single-vineyard bottlings, with a strong chocolatey character to the layered blackberry and spicecake flavors. As substantial as this is, it also boasts terrific cut. Very long on the aftertaste, with lush, seamless tannins." (Jan/Feb 10)
