93 points Purely Domestic Wine Report: "The nose is pulverized rock, ground pepper, blue plums and beef blood. The palate antry is lean, carbon-flecked blue fruit with an elegant brighter red fruit, pepper and florals in the mid-palate. I think the only reason my wife married me was because of a bottle of Piedrasassi I opened with her when we were dating. Drink 2021-2030. 1720 cs. Alcohol 12.7%. (The Value Guide, Vol. 1.1, 2021)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Syrah (Santa Barbara County) PS is juicy, bold and flat-out delicious. A burst of sweet blue/purplish fruit opens first, followed by a range of floral and savory notes that add complexity. A touch of whole cluster perfume comes through, with hints of lavender, sage, mint and black pepper that develop in the glass. Readers who want to explore the Piedrasassi range will find so much to like here. Best of all, the 2018 is a screaming value. Drink: 2020-2028. (Aug 2020)"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "All black pepper, olive and smoked meats when first poured, this wine is wildly expressive and relentlessly savory. A modest core of fig and currant flavor keeps all the savor on point, finishing firm and spicy, ready for thin-sliced Ibérico ham. (Oct 2020)"
