Jaffurs Winery, established in 1994, is one of the most prominent wineries in downtown Santa Barbara and a respected leader in the production of Rhône grape varieties across California. The 2016 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is another superb wine from Jaffurs. Here it is the wine’s inner sweetness and perfume that stand out most. The firm Petite tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer voluptuousness of the fruit. Sweet red and blueberry jam, wild roses and a bit of sweetness from the 20% new oak barrels comes through nicely.
