About Alban Vineyards
John Alban makes some of the most aromatically complex and explosively rich wines in the New World from traditional Rhone varieties. Since 1989 he’s worked entirely with fruit from his own superb clonal material, planted on chalk-rich hillside vineyards in Edna Valley.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($24) Bright gold. Restrained, mineral-driven aromas of pear, orange and white flowers, with a subtle spicy character. Racy on entry, then gains power and fleshiness in the middle palate and offers rich, expansive orchard and pit fruit flavors, with a dusty layer of lemon pith adding cut. The minerality and spiciness repeat on the nicely persistent, juicy finish.
