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 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
Pale gold. Powerful aromas of lemon curd, melon, peach pit and mint, with a suave floral topnote. Juicy, intensely flavored and focused on the palate, with intense orchard and pit fruit flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of quinine coming up with air. Shows impressive intensity and cut, with bright acidity giving focus to a very long, spicy finish.
