Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Jaffurs Wine Cellars was founded by Craig Jaffurs, known for his Rhone blends, and released his first commercial wine in 1994. Craig turned the business over to Dan and Janelle Green in 2016. About 40% of the wine was aged for 6 months in neutral oak and the rest in stainless steel, which keeps the wine fresh. Aromas of tropical fruits and elegant floral notes. On the palate layered flavors of peach, apricot and honey with refreshing acid balance. Nice mouthfeel, medium length, ending with refreshing fruit. Very nice! Tasting Sample!
