My first Reva and honestly I expected more. I like the “restraint” of the vintage but just left me wondering what all the fuss is about

Cork was soaked - funky smell - decanted with hopes of blowing it off - was drinkable but disappointing as I think John Alban crafts amazing Rhône like varietals and then ages for 3.5 years before release and I had two other Reva and Lorraine from same and similar vintages

2003 was stunning loaded with black olives, was Rhône to the bone.

Wow - that was fun / pop and pour a 2001 Syrah and had some funk but quickly it opened to display why Alban makes such wonderful wines

Spicy and meaty with full bodied and complex structure - aroma of jammy fruits but no heat no burn and no funk / it can sing

Smile and world will smile with you and this baby sure helps me smile - drink if you have - it is on the downslope of age

Had one a few weeks ago, in a great spot. Not sure this gets any better.

04’ Alban Reva. Very close to a pop & pour. Throw it in a decanter, just so It gets a little air. Full- bodied. All the blue fruit you can throw in a bottle. Blackberries, spice, licorice, herbs. Drinking now!
John wines are among my favorites. Especially his reds.
