90 points "Well-crafted, with ripe, rich fruit, lots of complex flavors and a sleek finish. Shows off ripe berry, currant and blueberry, with hints of smoke, sage and lavender. The tannins are big, ripe and plush. Drink now through 2012. " Best 2007-2012

90 points "Jaffurs’ wines continue to go from strength to strength, and recent vintages have been the finest I have yet tasted from this producer. The 2005 Syrah Santa Barbara is the most supple and soft of the group, it reveals plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit, soft acidity, silky tannin, and an opulent, plush mouthfeel. Enjoy this fleshy red over the next 3-4 years." Best 2007-2011
