99 points James Suckling: "Wow. This shows amazing aromas of foie gras, game, pepper and spice with the dark fruit. Full body and soft, juicy tannins that form the wild and exotic, syrah character in the aftertaste. Love this. From biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter-certified. Drink now or hold. 4,000 bottles produced. (12/17/18)"

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: "Their Suisassi '16, a monovarietal Syrah, opens with intense, complex aromas, pepper, tobacco, balsamic nuances all on a background of raspberry and cherry. On the palate it's powerful, tight, with superb flesh and a long, characterful finish. (2020)"

96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "There is a lot of gorgeous spice in the 2016 Syrah Suisassi, along with candied fruit, cherry and notes of blackberry. The Syrah takes very well to 20 months in oak, retaining a freshness and fruity sweetness to accompany the spice. The mouthfeel is velvety and rich. In the end, this is a fine and elegant expression of Syrah that I could envision serving with a creamy steak au poivre. Drink: 2020-2035. (May 2019)"

96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$196 list] The 2016 Suisassi brings together power and freshness to a degree that is quite rare on the coast. Inky dark purplish fruit, leather, licorice, plum, lavender and spice come together in a deep Syrah endowed with tremendous concentration as well as power. Time in the glass brings out the wine's explosive energy and tension. The 30% whole clusters are evident, but not overly so. Drink: 2021-2028. (Mar 2020)"
