96 Points - Connoisseurs Guide to California Wine:
"No less ripe and well-filled than any of its maker’s outstanding Syrah’s in 2016, this stunning effort vies for top honors in what is a marvelously rich bunch by dint of its fruity purity, its show-stopping depth and its altogether exemplary structure. It is very expressive stuff, to be sure, but it is marked by a certain youthful tightness that makes for easy predictions of an extraor-dinarily long and increasingly complex life ahead, and all seri-ous collectors of top-shelf Syrahs would be well-advised to lay a few bottles away - and even more if at all possible - to enjoy well beyond its tenth birthday.

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Last of the Syrahs, the 2016 Syrah Zio Tony Ranch comes from a cooler vineyard farmed by Martinelli and it saw 40% whole clusters and 18 months in 40% new French oak. It's another vivid purple-colored effort that boasts off the hook notes of blue fruits, lavender, ground pepper, and cured meats. Deep, rich, powerful, and opulent it has ample structure, an incredibly sweet earth and mineral character, hints of violets, and a great finish. This is one of the more opulent, flamboyant wines in the lineup, yet it has terrific minerality as well as flawless balance." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

96+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2016 Syrah Domaine Des Chirats is a more backward wine that just exudes a sense minerality and a liqueur of rocks like character. Deep purple-colored with an awesome nose of bloody blue fruits, ground pepper, graphite, and violets, it builds incrementally on the palate with full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and an incredible sense of purity and precision. This isn't a blockbuster yet seems to have one foot in the Rhone Valley and one foot in Sonoma. It's going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and cruise for 15+ years or more." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Barolo stands on firm ground thanks to the dark and savory qualities that lift heavily from the bouquet. This wine is saturated and rich with dark aromas that are firmly stitched together with spice, licorice and pressed blue flowers. There is power and richness at the deep inner core of this wine. It will unfold and become softer with time (perhaps five years or more)." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)

97+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"I loved the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, a magical expression of the Grand Cru terroir. Deep purple-hued with killer notes of black raspberries, bacon fat, ground herbs, and obvious minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a finish that won’t quit. Do your best to hold bottles for 4-5 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/12/2019)

"Leading off the three 2014s and almost as good as the 2015, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Winston Hill Red Wine (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot) boasts a deep purple color and full-bodied, opulent aromas and flavors of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, licorice and toasted spices. It’s a big, ripe, sexy wine and I almost wrote “fruit bomb”, yet it has a terrific mid-palate, notable tannin, and is going to age gracefully." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/29/2017)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A touch old-school, featuring savory, tobacco and rosemary accents amid a core of concentrated black cherry, red currant and plum paste flavors. Slightly austere, with chalky minerality harnessing the finish. A savory edge peeks in at the last second. For fans of the style. Best from 2022 through 2035." - JM (Issue Web Only - 2019)

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A finished barrel sample, the 2018 Syrah Santa Barbara County has a deep purple-black color and gregarious nose of gravel dust, cherry coulis, warm blueberries and loads of red fruit sparks with slowly opening nuances of cocoa, prosciutto and loads of exotic spices. It's full-bodied, dense and powerful, flooding the mouth with lush, ripe fruits and with a frame of firm, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing very long. This is a beast!" - Erin Brooks (12th Sep 2019)

92-94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:

"Coming from 66% Colson Grenache, 12% Tensley Vineyard Syrah, and the rest Colson Canyon Syrah, the 2018 Syrah All Blocks sports a deep ruby/plum color as well as terrific notes of black fruits, cured meats, spice, and crushed flowers. With a Châteauneuf du Pape-like character and complexity, it's medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and textured, with silky tannins." - Jeb Dunnuck (10/31/2019)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Rare Aged Tawny 50 Years Old is hugely concentrated in all respects. Dark, almost scorched-earth notes join dried dates and figs, yet there's also a searing level of bergamot-like acidity, which helps keep things balanced and (relatively) drinkable. Of course, there's black walnuts and molasses, plenty of rancio character and tremendous length. For pure pleasure, I prefer the 30-year-old bottling, but this is very impressive." - Joe Czerwinski (11th Jun 2019)
