Named after John Alban's raven-haired wife the 2001 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard (150 six-packs) exhibits a saturated purple color to the rim along with explosive aromas of acacia flowers and blackberries full body and admirable acidity. Impressively endowed thick and multilayered with considerable flavor dimension as well as character it will drink beautifully for a decade or more.

Broad sweet and vibrant with palate-saturating flavors of blackberry dark raspberry and violet. This boasts terrific inner-palate energy for a wine with such thickness of texture. Finishes supersweet lush and very long with notes of tar bitter chocolate and pepper. Here the wine's very strong material supports what appears to have been a rather extractive vinification for this producer.
