Alban Vineyards

Reva Syrah 09


Established in 1989, Alban Vineyards represents California's first winery and vineyard dedicated exclusively to the varietals of the Rhône. Pioneered by John Alban at a time when anything that was neither Cabernet nor Chardonnay was barely grown in California, Alban was a groundbreaking project and has gone on to be regarded as one of the U.S.A’s best and most influential producers. Although responsible for producing exceptional examples of Grenache and Viognier, it is the Syrah releases from Alban which, justifiably, receive the most attention. Reva Syrah is Alban’s much coveted, hard to come by top release; a 100% single vineyard Syrah which is aged in oak for 42 months before release. Up front and highly varietal on the nose, this cult wine exudes aromas of cassis, wild herbs, violet, earth and smoke. The palate is incredibly full-bodied and decadent with immense depth and wonderful freshness. Flavours of dark fruit, coffee, toasty oak and perfumed spice build on an intense mid palate before continuing on a long, momentous finish. Possibly California’s greatest example of this grape variety, this wine should age gracefully over the next 20 years and beyond.
