"[This] is one of the most compelling and arrestingly beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Foxen. Inky and explosive on the palate, with tremendous fruit intensity and fabulous balance, the 2016 is a real showstopper. Inky dark fruit, black pepper, lavender and sage build into the huge, explosive finish. The high percentage (75-80%) of whole clusters adds tremendous aromatic depth. There are just 180 cases of the 2016. If you can find it, get it!" - Vinous, 93-96 points

"Medium to deep ruby-purple, the 2016 Syrah Tinaquaic Vineyard Old Vines is scented of bay leaves, roasted coffee beans, turned earth, olive and charcuterie with dense, spicy black fruits at the core plus notes of chocolate and dried flowers. Medium to full-bodied, it floods the mouth with wonderful layers of savory, spicy fruits, framed by firm, slightly chewy tannins and a long finish with good freshness to lift." - Wine Advocate, 92+ points
