Jaffurs Syrah Santa Barbara County Upslope 2007

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2007 UPSLOPE Syrah represents the best 6 barrels in the winery for the vintage. It contains the best syrah from the year's production regardless of vineyard, clone, barrel type, or yeast selection. Candidate barrels are selected blind from our 40-some designated syrah barrels. Each barrel is outspoken, but also melds and enhances the final blend. Now in its fifth vintage, it is deep and extracted, but with elegance and smoothness that only careful blending can produce. It is a statement - our highest ideal of what fine Syrah can and should be. (142 cases produced) - Winery ** Only 19 in Stock **

Jaffurs Wine Cellars is dedicated to producing great Rhone varietal wines with a new-world independence. Our wines -Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Viognier, and Roussanne - are among the best in the county. Owner/winemaker Craig Jaffurs, produced his first professional wines during the 1994 harvest. All our wines are carefully made in small lots. Only about 3500 cases are produced each year - production is limited. We work closely with our growers in the Santa Ynez, Santa Rita, Los Alamos, and the Santa Maria growing regions. We limit vineyard yields and require that optimal farming practices are observed. All our wines are crushed, pressed, cellared and bottled in our Santa Barbara facility. Visit us for a glimpse of world class winemaking in the heart of the city. 2007 is our 14th harvest! In September of 2001 we completed construction of our new winery facility in the city of Santa Barbara. This modern, climate controlled facility allows us to make wine at a natural and careful pace. (Plus, it is only seven minutes from home!) We process all the fruit for our harvest here and the resulting wines show the benefits of this improved process. Come visit us at 819 E. Montecito Street (four blocks north of highway 101 off of Milpas Street). Read less
