Mac Pro Mountain Lion compatible?

Can I upgrade my Mac Pro (OS=Snow Leopard 10.6.8) to Mountain Lion?
I don't see anywhere in the About This Mac that would indicate approximate year of construction to illustrate the "early vs. Late" year of construction the "How To Upgrade" web page advisory indicates (i.e. Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer))

Here's the basic data from the About This Mac

    No, your serial number indicates that you have a 2007 Mac Pro, but the earliest model supported by Mountain Lion is early 2008.
