96 points "Beautifully crafted, tight and well-structured, brimming with ripe, juicy, vibrant blackberry and wild berry fruit that's intense, full-bodied, deep and concentrated. The long, lingering finish ends with spicy, loamy earth and cedar notes that are broad and profound. Drink now through 2020. 228 cases made. –JL" Best 2011-2020

97 points "critical acclaim: "Jaffurs also makes a Syrah from Santa Maria’s most famous vineyard, Bien Nacido. The 2008 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is black/purple, with an extraordinary nose of asphalt, graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with some earth and spice. Off-the-charts richness, intensity, and potential for future evolution make this an absolutely prodigious tour de force in Syrah. This is a sensational wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years. The wine’s finish has literally no hard edges but just goes on and on for a good 45+ seconds. This is just fabulous wine. "" Best -2025
