Reva Alban Estate Vineyard Syrah 2007

Enjoying this wine almost as much as the ducks seem to be enjoying our pool. I may be about to have a Tony Soprano moment. — 17 days ago

Clever. Very clever.

IX Estate Syrah 2005

Very good, but I prefer the 15 which is big & in your face.
This is more subdued because of age..
I prefer almost every older Alban over this one, not that this is bad just that Alban is great,

Domaine de Pergaud Saint-Julien-en-Saint-Alban Vieille Serine Syrah 2016

Excellent freshness and acidity from this vintage, displaying a lot of evolution over the hours. Aeration reveals finer tannin, more red fruit character, lavender, saddle leather, thyme and pepper. Perhaps not as impressive as the 2015, but still a fairly complex and interesting wine for the price. I appreciate Texier’s Syrahs very much; they are never dull or heavy. — 2 months ago

Precise but rich reduction, crunchy texture, dense, oily citrus fruit, and vibrant acidity. Alban Debeaulieu is a very thoughtful and intentional winemaker, and the owners of 00 were lucky he made the 2016’s. — a month ago

Alban Estate Vineyard Roussanne 2012

Lovely deep gold color with a touch of caramel. Viscous mouthfeel with complex citrus fruits and some acidity to cut through the meals spice. Wish I could do it better justice since it was so good but I tasted this after the spicy sauce! Thanks Jeff. — 2 months ago

9.2

An impressive representation of Viognier. Exotic nose of pineapple and citrus fruits is joined on the palate. While lacking acidity, the mid-palate is focused and precise. Displays great texture and minerality. We aligned on the rating. — 20 days ago

Needs a couple of years to peak...but still fantastic (especially after an awesome set of talks by Elad!). — a month ago

Gorgeous orange/gold color. Aromatic honey nose and a slightly oily resinous aromatic creamy honey taste. Holds up beautifully in the glass. Thanks for bringing Jeff! — 2 months ago
