I keep buying the older Albans whenever I see them under $100.00, still have an 05 mag of this waiting for the perfect time & place. That wasn’t under $100.00

"1772" Edna Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Tolosa 1772 Chardonnay Edna Ranch. Nose of beeswax, pear, and lemon. Very nice waxy mouthfeel that coats tour mouth. Long finish with notes of honey and cantaloupe. — 3 days ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

9.2

Not had wine from this producer before, but I adore this vineyard, and at a close out price, I wanted to give it a try.

As expected for Bien Nacido, there was a savory note on the nose with some smoked meat and iron, wrapped around rhubarb tart and candied black cherries. On the palate, it was quite light and semi acidic, with hardly any finish. I’m assuming there was a small use of whole cluster here due to the spice and lifted profile, but aside from that, it was fairly easy going with potpourri, bing cherries, and some cedar.

They make nice stuff. Hard to find.

It’s actually weightier than the la rinconada vineyard but not as much as the sanford and benedict. A nice showcase of vineyards in the lineup

Pandora Red Rhone Blend 2004

My first Pandora not mention my first bad cork on an Alban, but the juice is great. The nose is completely different from all the other Albans I’ve had👍🏼 — 16 days ago

Edna Valley Dry Riesling 2017

Pale white with a pale golden refraction. Floral, perfumed notes in nose. Litchi with slight grapefruit flavor, moderate skin astringency with mild seed tannin bitterness. Good body, acidity, rounded mouthfeel. Chrysanthemum with some green tea aftertaste. Lovely stuff, reminds me of the subtle flavor profiles I experienced living in Guangdong Province (Cantonese cuisine) — a day ago

Lorraine Syrah 2011

Not the greatest incarnation of this wine - but still terrific - the 2011 is remarkably approachable at such a (relatively) young age. A little closed at first, the wine opened up quickly to reveal the classic Alban aromas that we all love: roasted meat, iodine, blackberries, and a hint of smoke. A bit more fruit-forward than is typical for a Lorraine: that coupled with some softer tannins suggest that this is probably not one to forget about for a decade. Drinking really well right now (but it faded relatively quickly for an Alban - within a couple of hours - so this is on a fast evolutionary track). — 23 days ago
