94 Points from Vinous: "The 2018 Petite Sirah is a dark, exotic beauty. Inky and voluptuous, the 2018 packs a huge punch. Lavender, spice, chocolate are featured in this sumptuous, bold Petite. The tannins are balanced. This lineup from Epiphany, Fess Parker’s Rhône label, is terrific across the board. Blair Fox makes wines of uncommon depth and character. In recent years, the wines have gained in focus and energy, which is great to see." (06/2021)

93 Points from Jeb Dunnuck: "I always love this variety from Epiphany, and the 2018 Petite Sirah Rodney's Vineyard is another wine well worth seeking out. Loaded with smoky black and blue fruits, notes of dried herbs, chocolate, iron, and a kiss of meatiness, and medium to full-bodied, it’s another ripe, sexy wine that leads firmly into the ripe, textured, hedonistic side of the spectrum while staying balanced and incredibly drinkable."

93 Points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Iodine, violet, tar and plum extract aromas show on the nose of this bottling from the Fess Parker family's estate. It's very tarry on the rich palate, where darkly charred fruit, dried meat and crushed herb flavors converge." (10/1/2021)

91 Points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "While plenty ripe, there’s restraint here, too, which makes this wine compelling. Starting out smoky and dark, with scents of fig and dark chocolate, the palate opens up into a spicy mélange of clove, mace and windblown dust. Its texture is firmed up by oak, and the wine has the depth for tri-tip. " (06/2021)
