Identified as a unicorn. This was an amazingly nice Syrah. From detours vineyard by alban. Best with steak and lamb, long finish with loads of black pepper, blue fruits, and a sandy tannin at first. Beauty.

High expectations, but not nearly as good as I expected for something with such small production (50 cases)

I rarely use negative descriptors when describing Alban wines but this was just an over-extracted mess....
