95 points - Wine Enthusiast

Earthy yet bright on the nose with notes of orange marmalade and cloves, red licorice and warm holiday spices. Hints of charcoal and wet gravel also sneak in. On the palate this wine has a layered, textural mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. -Lily Hays, Director of Hospitality and Education

95 points - Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast

"Fresh and snappy aromas of black raspberry are dusted in light pepper, crumpled roses and a hint of violet on the nose of this bottling. It's simultaneously tight in texture and yet juicy in flavor on the palate, offering cherry, strawberry and rose in waves." -Matt Kettmann

93 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2019 Syrah John Sebastiano Vineyard is packed with blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, mocha and lavender. There's quite a bit of stem influence, but the whole clusters are pretty much buried by the intensity of the fruit. This potent, deep Syrah delivers the goods. It's a terrific example of Syrah from the eastern edge of the appellation." -Antonio Galloni

92 points - Wine & Spirits

"From a vineyard toward the eastern edge of the appellation, this wine has the ripeness of candied berries, fragrant and dark, with blackberry flavor that’s limned by a cardamom-scented edge. It’s ripe but firm, reined in by a sanguine, gamey savor." —P.J.C.
