Typical,
Another great well aged Alban🤷🏼‍♂️

Stats from someone, but not me per norm

The 2006 Grenache looks spectacular, and may turn out to be the finest Grenache John Alban has yet made. Made from cuttings taken from the famed Chateau Rayas in Chateauneuf du Pape, it possesses an un-Grenache-like inky/purple color as

Perfect wine with Thanksgiving turkey. Rich, but not over the top. Bright red fruit. Lively and bright. Wish I had more.

Classic Alban Grenache. Fruity complex with an iodine finish. I love this stuff.

Stunning, rich and smooth. Striking red fruit and spicy nose. Worth waiting a decade in the cellar. A great American wine for the 4th of July.

Delicious. 16.5% alcohol but the fruit stands up so well against it. Fruit first and alcohol at the back.
