Jaffurs Wine Cellars Santa Barbara County Syrah 2014

$29

A fantastic buy                         A fantastic new release from one of our favorite boutique producers in Santa Barbara. Limited. 92 Points Robert Parker: "Another great vintage for this cuvee, which is no shock coming from this terrific estate, the 2014 Syrah from Santa Barbara County offers fabulous blackberry, crushed rock and peppery aromas and flavors in a full-bodied, ripe, sexy and textured package. It has terrific purity and a great finish, and should drink nicely for at least 4-5 years, probably longer. Note, the 2014 includes 10% Petite Sirah and spent nine months in neutral oak. Buy a case." 91 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "A delicious appellation-level wine, the 2014 Syrah (Santa Barbara County) is a great introduction to the Jaffurs wines. Dark red cherry and plum fruit make a strong first impression. Drink this flavorful, juicy Syrah over the next handful of years. This is a flat-out delicious bottle of wine. Vineyard sources are Larner, Stolpman, Bien Nacido, Thompson and Kimsey."

Delicious. Full rich mixed berry jam flavors with underlying minerality. Super pleasant mouth feel and a zesty pepper finish.
