"[This wine] is positively stellar. A rush of red plum, blueberry pie, leather, pomegranate and blood orange infuses this deep, super-expressive Syrah. A dollop (10-12%) of whole cluster adds energy. Next to [Foxen's other Syrahs], the Tinaquaic Syrah shows a greater sense of verticality in its structure along with a brighter, more red-toned expression of fruit." - Vinous, 92-95 points (barrel sample)

"A blend of 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier that spent 20 months in 80% new French and Hungarian oak, [this wine] sports a deep purple color as well as notes of black fruits, charred earth, ground herbs, and pepper. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, and focused on the palate, it has ripe yet firm tannins, good acidity, and a great finish. It's tight, closed, and slightly compact, yet certainly has plenty of potential." - JebDunnuck.com, 92 points

"Firmly structured, yet complex and precise, with expressive blueberry, orange peel and smoky pepper beef accents that build tension toward taut tannins." - Wine Spectator, 91 points
