92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Red Blend Dragon's Tooth, a Malbec-based blend, is bold, luscious and fruity - qualities that combine to give it tremendous near- and medium-term appeal. A rush of red cherry jam, raspberry, sweet spice and new leather punctuate this flashy, exuberant Napa Valley red. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years. Drinking Window: 2019-2027. (Jan 2020)"

92 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and mushroom aromas with hints of dried flowers. Medium to full body. Blackberries. Firm tannins. Juicy finish. Needs some time to soften. Better after 2022. (2/14/20)"

91 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "[$65 list] Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, rich, ripe, dark cherry and wild berry fruit aroma with hints of cedar, black olive, cinnamon, and cocoa powder; full body; elegantly styled, red and black fruit flavors with spicy and herbal notes, good acid balance, and pleasing richness in the mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable now, though best to November 2020 give it several more years of bottle aging. 14.2% alcohol; blended with 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc , 3% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot; released January 2020. (Nov 2020)"

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$65 list] This classic, elegant wine is food friendly and demure in red fruit and dried herb. Sinewy layers of integrated tannin and oak give it a cohesive feel on the lengthy, graceful palate. Alcohol 14.2%. (Apr 2020)"
