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.

Light yellow-gold. An exotic, highly perfumed nose displays poached pear, nectarine and white flowers, with a dusty mineral overtone. Juicy and broad on entry but tighter in the mid-palate, offering penetrating citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter peach pit. Sexy floral and honey qualities linger on the lush, expansive, energetic finish.
