93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$38 list] The 2018 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is a rich, generous wine for Red Car. Inky red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, spice and licorice are all kicked up in this inviting, beautifully textured Syrah. The Sonoma Coast bottling is blended from some of the riper lots on the Estate, and that bit of extra richness is what drives its personality and overall balance. Drink: 2022-2033. (Jan 2021)"

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another beautiful wine that’s a Northern Rhône look-alike, the 2018 Syrah Sonoma Coast sports a nearly opaque ruby/plum color to go with an attractive nose of ripe red and black berry fruits intermixed with smoked game, ground pepper, leafy herbs, bay leaf, and a touch of graphite. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has a rich, fleshy texture, notable freshness, and bright tannins, all of which give it a clean, classic, very Northern Rhône-like style. It’s a joy to drink today, yet it should easily evolve for 7-8 years. Drink: 2021-2029. (7/22/21)"
