Tobin’s Review 3.5 out of 5
Jaffurs High Tide 2020 has a dark blueberry hue with a very fruity aroma of red berries. The wine is smooth, relatively light and has slight blackberry, cherry and plum flavors. The wine ends slightly dry, but is well balanced with a hint of licorice and gravel. Overall, it’s a nice easy to drink red blend!
