    Critical Acclaim:

    An absolutely monumental wine is the 2005 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard. The finest Syrah John Alban has yet produced, its inky/ruby/purple hue is accompanied by gorgeously sweet aromas of flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, blackberries, and subtle hints of smoky oak, bacon fat, and licorice. In the mouth, the wine is seamlessly constructed with fabulous fruit, brilliant concentration, and virtually perfect balance. Moreover, the finish lingers on the palate for over 60 seconds.

    The Wine Advocate

    Rich and full-bodied, offering a bold, ripe, complex mix of mocha, spicy berry, beef and peppery scents. For all its size and depth of flavor, this is elegant and polished, ending with supple tannins and tar and mineral notes. Smooth, long and expansive.

    Wine Spectator

    Vivid purple. Extremely complex aromas of black raspberry, cassis, smoky minerals and dried flowers, with a building note of cured meat. Broad, sappy and gently sweet, offering succulent dark berry flavors and a kick of bracing minerality. The smoky note comes on strong on the extremely long, spicy, sweet finish. This wine was bottled after 42 months in barrel.
