The 2006 Syrah Reva coming from parcels of dark volcanic soil has off-the-chart richness and intensity. This thick opaque-purple colored wine offers up notes of scorched earth ground pepper and blackberry liqueur intermixed with cassis licorice camphor and tar. The wine is spectacular in every sense. Full-bodied and certainly not for wimps this is a remarkably concentrated yet very nuanced and intense wine that should age for 20 more years.

Truly extraordinary, the 2006 Alban Vineyards Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard is a jaw dropping Syrah, sporting rich, full aromatics of smoky dark fruits, steak tartare, tapenade, and licorice. These carry over to the palate where the wine is perfectly built, possessing awesome concentration, solid, almost burly structure, and a phenomenal texture that coats the palate, but at the same time, stays light, fresh, and clean. I’m a huge fan, and while delicious now, I’ve no doubt this will continue to drink well for 15 to 20 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Blackberry boysenberry and licorice pastille on the nose with mounting spice and floral notes and a strong wallop of cracked pepper. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors expand with air and pick up strong spicecake and candied flower notes along with velvety tannins. More backward than the Lorraine today and showing a darker profile. The finish completely stains the palate and lingers with intense floral and spicy persistence. This is still a baby.
