International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 135

(scheduled to be bottled in December, 2007) Inky purple. Hugely aromatic nose boasts an exotic array of boysenberry, candied plum, cured meat, floral pastille and licorice; I was almost scared to taste this. Huge and utterly mouthfilling; stains the palate with concentrated but energetic dark berry liqueur flavors and baking spices, with large-scaled but amazingly harmonious tannins adding grip. Turns more red berry-flavored on the finish, leaving behind sweet raspberry and cherry preserves, along with cracked pepper and cinnamon. Pretty remarkable stuff. At this point in our tasting Alban said that he considers wine-making to be "a performance, with constant self-doubt and second-guessing. Show me a great winemaker and I'll show you somebody who changes his mind a hundred times during the harvest."

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 177

There are around 280 six-packs of the fabulous, virtually perfect 2004 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard. An inky/blue/purple color is followed by an extraordinary bouquet of bacon fat, roasted meats, creme de cassis, forest floor, and hints of black olives and pepper. Opulent and full-bodied with thrilling levels of concentration, this amazing effort is John Alban's hommage to his father, Seymour. Give it another 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Shows amazing depth, richness and concentration. Dark and savory, with tiers of blackberry, blueberry and wild berry fruit that takes on a smoky, meaty, gamy edge. Full-blown, mouthcoating and deliciously complex. The finish goes on and on.
