Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Tremendous; dark, dense, rich and concentrated, with layers of beef carpaccio, blackberry, wild berry, exotic peppery spices and touches of tar and herbs, finishing with a long, rich, detailed finish.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The saturated blue/purple-hued 2001 Syrah Reva Vineyard Estate reveals a huge nose of melted licorice, crushed rocks, creme de cassis, blackberries, pepper, and spice. This voluptuous, rich, intense Syrah possesses a 40+ second finish.

International Wine Cellar

Dark ruby. Sexy, perfumed nose combines violet, bitter chocolate, gunflint and exotic woodsmoke. Sweet, lush and gamey, with captivating flavors of gunflint, game, dark chocolate and flowers. Like a new-wave Northern Rhone wine. Finishes juicy, gamey and long, with fine tannins.

Alban Vineyards is the first America winery and vineyard established exclusively for Rhone varieties. Conceived at a time when there were virtually only two "flavors" of wine produced in the U.S., they set out to introduce wine grapes that would offer oenephiles a new world of possibilities. Pioneering Roussanne, Grenache Noir and Viognier to go along with meticulously selected clones of Syrah, Alban Vineyards has guided consumers and producers to the enormous potential of Rhone varietals in California.
