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.
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
Inky purple. Blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with notes of violet and lavender adding complexity. Juicy and intensely flavored, with excellent depth and clarity. Closes sweet and very long, with gentle tannins and lingering spiciness.
