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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012
Bright violet. Smoky cherry and dark berries on the nose, with hints of herbs, olive and dried flowers adding complexity. Lush and creamy in texture, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and an exotic note of spicecake. Closes with serious power and breadth, leaving a smoky note behind. This rich, potent wine will work well with strongly seasoned foods.
