Winemaker Notes

A blend of our best reserve Syrah components of 2009. Extensive blending trials over several days enabled us to make a Syrah which we feel "has it all". Big, bold, smooth, and built to last.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
This is a selection of the best Syrahs from Jaffurs. There's normally about 150 cases made. The nose is very complex with meat, black pepper, and dark fruits. Full and dense but very balanced with fresh acidity and a long, long finish. This has complexity and intensity but subtlety. Better in 2013.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Intense spice, pepper and dried wild berry notes give this a tight focus, and the wine unfolds slowly, turning supple and revealing a hot brick and roasted herb edge that promises to be more forthcoming with a year or two. Best from 2013 through 2023. 144 cases made.

Jaffurs Wine Cellars Winery Image
Jaffurs Wine Cellars is dedicated to producing great Rhône varietal wines with a new-world independence. It is one of the newest wineries in Santa Barbara County. Owner/winemaker Craig Jaffurs, working out of the Central Coast Wine Warehouse in Santa Maria, produced his first wines during the 1994 harvest. During the 1999 harvest, production increased to 2500 cases including Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier, and Roussanne.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
