94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The Syrah Grenache John Sebastiano (No SO2) is a rockstar wine from Ojai. The combination of Syrah and Grenache works wonders. Pliant, deep and resonant, the 2016 is full of character. The 2016 offers terrific persistence and impeccable overall balance. It is a wine of unusual class. I loved it."
Sans Soufre Ajouté (without sulfites added), a fresh and ready fusion of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah that is crafted from grapes grown on the wind scoured slopes of John Sebastiano Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. This 2017 bottling reflects the culmination of six years of tinkering with sulfite-free wines, and now we are presenting the wine with a new and distinctive look.
