Not made in 2008 because of the extraordinarily tiny crop, the 2007 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard, named after John Alban's father, won't be released until late 2011 and only 50 cases were made. It's a wine of prodigious concentration and intensity with much of the same character as both the Reva and Lorraine, but even denser and probably capable of lasting 25-30 or more years.

Dense and chewy from the start, this is rustic, but pleasantly so. A cement mixer of crushed rock, extracted dark berry, espresso, road tar and melted black licorice. A striking, muscle-bound effort that's fun to wrestle with.

About This Producer


Alban Vineyards is a California wine estate producing various Rhone style blends and varietal wine. The winery is located in Edna Valley, near Arroyo Grande in the southern corner of San Luis Obispo County.

Starting in 1985, John Alban planted grapes for other people until he bought an estate in 1989. With a focus on creating wines made from Rhone Valley varieties, Alban became one of the pioneers in the Rhone Rangers movement, and is considered one of the most influential American Rhone producers.

Within a 250-acre (100 ha) area, the vineyard area extends 60 acres (24 ha), and is planted with varieties Syrah, Viognier and Roussanne. Grenache and Roussanne are also sourced from vineyards located in the warmer Paso Robles AVA.

Among the vineyard designate wines produced are the Lorraine Vineyard, Reva Vineyard Syrah and Seymour's Vineyard Syrah. Alban also produces Pandora, a blend of Grenache and Syrah, and a botrytized dessert wine.
