Reviews

Vinous  94 points ~ The 2020 High Tide, Jaffurs's 60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah, 20% Grenache is gorgeous. Succlent dark cherry, plum, leather, spice, and menthol all flesh out with a bit of aeration. The 2020 is impeccably balanced, not to mention incredibly delicious. It's one of the highlights in this range. Drinking window 2024-2034. — Antonio Galloni

Jeb Dunnuck  92 points ~ The 2020 High Tide is 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and 20% Syrah that was 25% destemmed and spent 18 months in neutral barrels. It's a solid step up over the Grenache, offering beautiful darker berry fruits as well as violets, tons of peppery herbs, and some foresty, earthy nuances. Balanced and medium to full-bodied, with wonderful purity, it's a gem that will keep for 7-8 years, probably longer. — Jeb Dunnuck

2017 High Tide, Santa Barbara County

Jeb Dunnuck  92 points ~ The 2017 High Tide Santa Barbara County checks in as close to equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre that saw plenty of stems and 18 months in 17% new French oak. This meaty, spicy blend offers a deep purple hue, notes of spiced blackberries, crushed violets, and peppery spice, medium-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a well-balanced, concentrated style that's going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years or more. Maturity 2020-2028. — Jeb Dunnuck
