Product Description

Though Jaffurs founder and winemaker Craig Jaffurs retired in 2016, the 2015 Thompson Vineyard Petite Sirah is entirely the product of his tremendous winemaking skills. This wine exemplifies what true, pure Petite Sirah is all about by displaying incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. It has gobs of dark cherry and black fruit flavors, with spice, licorice, and chocolate aromas, and a stick-to-your-lips quality. The cool vineyard site led to its typical long hang time, giving ripe tannins and good acidity. Approachable as a young wine, it will also reward additional cellaring.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Petite Sirah, Carrari clone
Appellation: Santa Barbara County (Thompson Vineyard)
Aging: 10 months in 13% new American oak barrels, 87% one year and older French and American oak barrels.

94 Points - Vinous Media
"The 2015 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is fabulous. Crème de cassis, blueberry jam, mint, lavender and blood orange give the wine its exotic, intensely aromatic profile. This is a beautiful, unctuous wine. Don't miss it." -AG, 9/2017

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Lilac and olallieberry notes are enhanced by tobacco spice and white pepper on the nose of this rare Petite Sirah bottling from Santa Barbara County. Juicy and rich on the palate, it shows blackberry and blueberry fruit, accented with lavender and anchored with sticky tannins. The finish is marked by char and menthol." -MK, 5/1/17
