91 points "Rustic and earthy, dense and concentrated, with a leathery road tar edge to the dried dark berry flavors. Distinctive and potent, this packs in lots of flavor, framed by sturdy tannins. Drink now through 2017. 344 cases made. –JL" Best 2010-2017

92 points "Dark purple in color and stunningly huge, with fresh young fruit, this is a thick, glyceriney Syrah stuffed with blackberry jam, espresso, cinnamon, dark chocolate and peppery notes. So fruity and so rich, but it’s also a tannic wine that will benefit from a few years of age. A Cellar Selection — S.H. " Best 2009-2015

91 points "Intense pepper, spice and dried berry flavors are full-bodied and tight, marked by a cedary edge. Impressive for its focus, restraint and persistence. The tightest of the 2008 Jaffurs bottlings. Cellar. Best from 2012 through 2021. 142 cases made. –JL" Best 2012-2021
