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.
93-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
Glass-staining ruby. Brighter and higher-pitched than the Reva, offering an array of exotic red berry preserve and floral scents and flavors. Big but balanced syrah, finishing with outstanding thrust and persistent spiciness.
