International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($85) Opaque ruby-purple. Superripe, almost porty aromas of kirsch, black licorice and baking chocolate. Densely packed, superripe and a bit high-toned, with creamy, sweet flavors of baked fruits and violet. Ultimately quite seamless and even rather elegant. Finishes slightly aggressive, with a note of hot stones.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 148

The luxury cuvee of 2000 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard (named after John Alban's father) is a Syrah on steroids. A bottle left open for two weeks revealed no signs of oxidation. Amazing! The inky/blue/purple color is followed by a wine reminiscent of dry vintage port. Notes of scorched earth, blackberry liqueur, and asphalt are presented in an unctuous, thick, chewy style with marvelous extract and multiple dimensions. This is a tour de force in winemaking, and certainly any Rhone Ranger aficionado should be beating a path to Alban Vineyards to get a bottle or two of this elixir.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Tremendous color, complexity, concentration and depth of flavor. For all the flavors that unravel--espresso, blackberry, pencil lead, currant and cedary oak--there's a wonderful sense of harmony, elegance and finesse. Finishes long, with tight focus and ripe, beautifully integrated tannins. 75 cases made.

Daniel B Trust Rating: 99 Tasted On: 06/14/2003 Drink Dates: 2006-2011

Black purple colored wine with black currant, peanut butter, licorice, charcoal, hickory, white pepper, and dark soy sauce aromas. Mouth coating thick and rich flavors on the palate with persistent length. Very dense at present despite the aromatic complexity shown.
